Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa says his agency acted swiftly in its investigation of an unauthorized high-speed police escort of sports cars to Atlantic City because public safety was put at risk.

Chiesa spoke briefly about the investigation at the start of a Senate budget hearing Tuesday in Trenton. Lawmakers were asked not to grill the attorney general on the escort but to focus on budget issues.

Two state troopers have been suspended in connection with the March 30th trip down the Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway. Witnesses say the cars reached speeds of 100 mph.

The chairman of the Senate budget committee, Democrat Paul Sarlo, calls the incident a “blip.”

However state officials are also investigating a second apparent high-speed police escort of cars in 2010.
