“They stopped a brother, so I stopped to see what they were doing,” Waters says in the video. “They said I’m in the wrong place, and that they’re going to give me a ticket. That’s OK, as long as I watch them.”

Ultimately, the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee received only a warning after refusing to sign the citation.
