The officer gets out and i roll down my officer and trying not to cry from the pain ask him whats the problem he doesnt even resond and asks me to step out of the vehicle. I comply get out and he asks if i have been drinking tonight. And i said no im coming home from work and i have kidney stones that are passing and it caused the veer. and he acted like i was making it all up. He then asks to search my truck and asks if i have any weapons on me and i say no but I have a paintball gun behind the seat because i was playing before work. So he goes rooting through my truck and im now cuffed sitting on the curb like i broke some law about to pass out from the pain in my side and he freaks out when he sees my tippman because it looks like a m4 and asks me why on earth i had it and i explained to him that i wa splaying paintball and told him tokeep looking an he'd find my mask and co2 and paintballs which he did and then brought me to the squad car gave me a breathalyzer and saw that i was indeed not drunk and told me to drive more carefully and i should really get my stomach checked out by a doc. ummmm i was already in the er alllll of sunday anyway he just left i was so pissed my dad and i wrote up a formal complaint and are looking into further things we can do ugh i hate california
yeah well that's California. some of the patrolmen around here are kinda dbags too. alot of em aren't. my dad got pulled over one time bc he veered over cuz he had to poop so bad. cop ended up following him to a gas station, he went and the cop let him go with a warning.
