Sovereign Traveler Stopped On Interstate 41

Washington County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 36-year-old Menasha man on 8 outstanding arrest warrants over the weekend after a tailgating incident on I-41. A man who identified himself as “Mustafa” was trailing other vehicles staying 3 to 5 feet behind them. When he was stopped he told deputies he was a “sovereign citizen and traveler” and not subject to government statutes. Under his real name he was wanted on multiple warrants for resisting an officer, drunken driving, fleeing an officer and other offenses.
