IOWA CITY, Iowa — Just as Gov. Terry Branstad was trying to move beyond a speeding scandal, a second trooper driving the governor was pulled over and disciplined for driving over the limit, officials told The Associated Press today.
Trooper Darren Argabright was pulled over Aug. 27 for speeding while driving Branstad to a town hall meeting in Hampton, about 90 miles north of Des Moines, said Iowa State Patrol spokesman Sgt. Scott Bright. Argabright was stopped on Highway 3, a two-lane highway with a 55-mph limit, and given a warning ticket by a Franklin County deputy.
