A Georgia police department is in hot water over the purchase of a Hellcat muscle car.
"We have not yet responded to that letter and we're examining all our options," department spokesperson Shannon Volkodav told Fox 5.
The Hellcat boasts a top speed of 204 mph.
The black sedan is being used as Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway’s official car, which the DOJ said differed from the use stated in the application for the funds as an “undercover/covert operations” vehicle.

"Staff is working with the Sheriff’s Office to respond to the Department of Justice regarding the vehicle purchase.
Until the matter is resolved, the Sheriff’s Office has been cut off from the DOJ's seized asset reallocation program. »
