You're going toturn away from me.

I have the rightto know the reason why I'm being pulled over.

You absolutely do.

And I'm going to tellyou in one second.

So be quiet.

Really? Apparently, you don't.

Yes, I do.

Apparently, you don't.

[police radio chatter] OK.

And you're treatingme like a criminal.

I'm not treatingyou like a criminal.

You are.

Let's both relax, OK? Turn around.


Are you all right? Yeah, I'm good.

You don't have to– – I have no criminal record.

I'm not– And that's beside– that's besides thepoint, all right? Were you involved possibly insome drag racing back there? No.

I was just comingfrom [inaudible].


Well, I have someone–another vehicle that stopped, and this exact vehicledescription given out, including your registration, stating that you were racing with another vehicle.

I wasn't racing nobody.


Well, I'm– I'm tellingyou that's what I have.

But I wasn't street racing.

I'm on my way backto [inaudible].

– Have a good day.

Take care.

Drive safe, man.

He was a little upset whenI pulled him out of the car.

There is oftentimessome confusion as to whether or not wehave to tell people what they were pulled over for.

Until we know thatthe scene is safe, and we'll tell themlater on, we don't have to tell them that right away.

He could have been arrestedand charged with eluding.

Instead, he was givena break and was only issued a ticket for speeding.

[music playing] SERGEANT RAPOZA: So we're, uh, going to a business that reported that there was coupleof people shooting up heroin in the businesses parking lot.

So we're going to headover there and see if we can locate the party.
