A flash of a badge is all it takes to escape arrest in Catoosa County, Ga., if you're FBI Special Agent Ken Hillman, several officers admit.

Fort Oglethorpe Officer Greg Cross is the second North Georgia officer to tell his boss Hillman was given a ride by law enforcement after the agent was suspected of drinking and driving and that his name was kept out of any police reports.

Fort Oglethorpe Police Chief David Eubanks told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that Cross told him the story after joining the department.

According to Eubanks, Cross was a Catoosa County deputy sheriff when he pulled Hillman over after he saw the bumper on the agent's car "almost dragging the ground."
