Trooper Rips Out Car Window: “I’m not Going to Talk to You Through a Crack!”

Video posted to Facebook by Ray Harris Jr. Wednesday shows a May 7 traffic stop and a Maryland trooper immediately asking Harris to get out of the car.

Harris says the trooper hasn’t told him why he’s been stopped and argues it isn’t necessary for him to get out of his car.

After Harris requests a supervisor, the argument continues and the trooper seems to grow frustrated.

“Sir, I’m telling you to step out.”

“Why did you pull me over, sir?” Harris asks.

“Don’t worry about it,” the trooper replies.

“Don’t worry about it?”

“Just stay right there, OK?”

“I’m going to stay right here, sir,” Harris says into the camera.

“Are you going to step out of the vehicle? Yes or no?”

“Can I get your name, sir?”

“So, I’m telling you lawfully to step out of the vehicle.”

“You have not given me your name. You have not told me why you pulled me over. You have not given me a reason to step out of this vehicle,” Harris replies.

A back and forth argument ensues for several minutes.

The trooper eventually reaches his hands into the cracked window, which Harris left open by a few inches, then breaks out the window with his bare hands before pulling Harris out and arresting him.

Harris was charged with failing to obey a lawful order and spent eight hours in jail.

The failing to obey charge has since been dropped.

Attorney David Benowitz said he didn’t believe the trooper had enough reason to order the driver out of the car, which requires reasonable and articulable suspicion that a vehicle search or pat-down should be done.

But he advised drivers to comply first.

“If I were the driver of that car, my advice would be you get out of the car and deal with that issue later,” Benowitz said.

Harris says he is now working to get his record expunged, according to Fox 32.

He is also asking for Maryland State Police to discipline the trooper.

“I don’t have a problem with police. I have a problem with police thinking they can do whatever they want,” he explained in an interview about the video.

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.
