UPDATED: Cop Pulls Man out of Car after Man tells him he is Legally Carrying

UPDATE: Turns out, the above video is from March 14, 2015. The name of the driver is Quincy Blakeley. He was convicted of assault on a public servant. His appeal attempts have been denied.

Original Story

What started off as a traffic stop over a missing license plate light turned into a violent altercation when the driver refused to step out of his car and allow himself to be frisked on the sole basis that he was legally carrying a concealed weapon.

A woman sitting in the passenger’s seat, who was also pulled out of the car, recorded the exchange leading up to the altercation. The video was posted Thursday on a Facebook page called Critical Critique.

Under Texas law, drivers are required to hand over their concealed weapon permit along with their drivers license if they are pulled over while carrying a concealed weapon, according to the U.S. & Texas Law Shield Blog.

Texas – You have an obligation, if you are carrying a weapon, to hand the officer your LTC along with your driver’s license. There is currently no penalty on the books for failing to give the officer your LTC in this situation, but it is still good practice to do so, particularly if you want to avoid a very annoyed police officer.

But states like Florida only require drivers to inform cops they are carrying a concealed weapon if the cop directly asks them.

It is not clear at this time how the above incident ended but police will no doubt justify the incident with the 1977 Supreme Court ruling Pennsylvania v. Mimms that states that a “police officer ordering a person out of a car following a traffic stop and conducting a pat-down to check for weapons did not violate the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
