The Car in front of you is driving in a slightly erratic manor. The
car is weaving with in the lane and the speed is not constant. There
appears to be one male occupant of the car and you think he may be a D.U.I.
You turn on the blue and red lights in order to engage in a traffic stop.
The car does not immediately stop. But the drive does pull to the
right in order for you to get around.
You advise the car to pull over and stop via the PA.
The car pulls over and before you are done with informing the dispatcher,
the driver is out of the car and speaking fast, loudly and with animated
gestures of his hands and arms.
Using the PA, you advise him to get back in the car. He does not.
You exit the car and are immediately confronted by the driver. He
demands to know why you stopped him.
You again request to drive to return to the car. He does not.
He keeps speaking fast, loudly and with animated gestures of his hands
and arms. He asks you why you have stopped him and why you are harassing

and request that he backups. He does not.
At this point you place the driver under arrest for failure to comply with
a police officer and suspicion of D.U.I.
At the station he is not close to D.U.I and you find out that his son and
wife had filled a harassment complaint with the chief earlier that day.
The chief is not a happy camper when he heard about the arrest. But
he has a reputation for being far and has asked you to write a complete
confidential report explaining all the facts and decision making and Probable
Cause to make the stop and arrest.
