Madison Cawthorn is pulled over by cops, asked to hand over his revoked license in new dashcam video

Newly-released dashcam video on Tuesday showed Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) seemingly stunned when a police officer informed informed him he was driving with an invalid license during a traffic stop in his home state.

The 26-year-old congressman was asked to turn over his license last month and switch seats with a woman who had been in the passenger seat of his pickup truck, a two-minute thirty-two-second video shared by the Charlotte Observer shows. 

The traffic stop occurred on March 3, 2022, the outlet reported. 

The clip is taken from the dashboard camera of the North Carolina trooper’s police car, and shows the officer pulling over a pickup truck that had been veering slightly 

The trooper reportedly pulled over the Republican lawmaker for expired tags but then informed him he would have to take his license.

‘Is that so?’ Cawthorn replies. 

Through grainy audio he can be heard pointing out Cawthorn’s upcoming May 6 court date.

A female passenger gets out of the vehicle, dons high heels and is aided by the officer in getting Cawthorn’s wheelchair out of the truck bed. 

The congressman gets out and shakes hands with the trooper before moving toward the passenger side of the car. 

A highway patrol trooper reportedly pulled over Cawthorn just after 10:30pm on March 3 and told him he was driving with expired tags, and that his license had a ‘pickup order’

He was last charged with driving with a revoked license in 2017, though that charge was later dropped, the Observer reported. 

It’s not the first recent run-in he’s had with North Carolina Highway Patrol.  

Earlier this month, local outlet Queen City News released footage from a traffic stop in October during which Cawthorn was pulled over for speeding.

‘I do not have my wallet on me,’ the lawmaker says when asked if he had his license. 

And Cawthorn again appeared surprised at being informed he was breaking the rules, with the officer in that incident telling him the car was registered to his father  — despite Cawthorn claiming it was in his name.

‘It looks like it’s registered to, I guess, your dad,’ the cop says in the video.

Cawthorn replies, ‘Is it really?’

He later reportedly pleaded guilty to improper equipment and paid a $25 fine.

The congressman was also pulled over in January of this year for going 17 miles over the speed limit. 

‘I know, I’m driving like an idiot, I’m sorry sir,’ Cawthorn says in the video also obtained by QCN.

He can also be heard informing the officer there was a firearm in the car.

The January incident occurred soon after Cawthorn…
