Not sure if I am thinking of the same guy tho.
Cease & Desist order is quite common when the Ag Inspector didn't actually catch an illegal application or have proof positive. It is a way of stopping the illegal applications without a long investigation or legal complications. It also sets the individual up for a very heavy fine if they get caught again. I am not saying many blow off the C&D and keep applying, but it sure gives the Ag inspector more teeth the next time he catches them.
