Video of officer pointing gun at passenger draws mixed reactions – GOPUSA

Police Statement:

“The officer informed the occupants to wait in the vehicle as he prepared to walk back to his motorcycle to write a citation. It was at that time that the passenger began reaching under his seat. It is not clear why the passenger chose to reach under the seat since the officer was not requesting any other paperwork,” the statement said. The CPD also said that the reason for the lengthy amount of time he held his gun on the passenger was due to his location on the side of a highway. “If this same situation would have occurred closer to back-up officers, it would most likely have been resolved much sooner. However, since this occurred on the side of Highway 101 during rush hour traffic, it took an extended amount of time until other officers could arrive and provide assistance in safely resolving the situation,” the statement said.
