FEMA housing inspector Vincent Koley, 74, was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon after the 11:30 a.m. incident, the Cedar Rapids Police Department reported.
Koley stopped the car and jumped out, police said. Tom Kramer told him to slow down and that he was in the cross walk. Koley replied that "he didn't have to slow down, he was with FEMA," police said. The two argued for a minute, and when Kramer turned to walk away, Koley took a golf club out of his car and struck Kramer across the arm, breaking the golf club.
Re: Police: FEMA Inspector Assaults Flood Zone Resident
My Mom's house is in the flood area, and was badly damaged. I've been back there helping with the clean up, and I gotta tell you, the speeds some of those folks drive at within the flooded residential areas are scarey.
I found myself yelling at a huge dump truck, that had to be going 45+ in a 25 mph zone, to slow down. Of course the noise of the truck drowned me out, and the driver didn't hear me. But with all the stuff piled up creating blind intersections, it doesn't help to have these idiots speeding up and down the streets.
