Looking at the 1st video, I say the officer acted within the law. If you think that obstructing your license plate in Nevada is not illegal and can't get you pulled over or arrested, you are wrong. The police officer may have had ulterior motives, but that is neither illegal or wrong in the world of law enforcement. News flash, the cops can and will lie to you and there is nothing you can do about it. At the same time, cops expect you to be honest with them.

I could write a book or lecture for hours about how not to get pulled over and/or arrested. Lesson #1, make sure your license plate is properly displayed and lighted. I wrote an article recently called, "Three easy steps to a less unpleasant traffic stop How to get pulled over and survive." If you are interested, it is on my website in the articles section.

The second video, while putting the events of the day in perspective, does not seem to be linked to the first video. Maybe I missed something.

In case people don't realize, a citation MAY be issued IN LIEU of being arrested. But the officer does have the choice of just citing you or arresting you for minor infractions. This time he chose arrest, right or wrong.

About the illegal video taping of cops, Metro settled a case a few months ago with a guy who was arrested and roughed up while in his own driveway as he taped officers arresting someone across the street. An officer ordered him to stop taping and he refused. They knocked him to the ground ON HIS OWN PROPERTY and arrested him. I don't remember the pay out but Metro settled and dropped the charges. Just a stupid officer over stepping his authority.

Matt - I hate to tell you, but in that first clip, that officer did NOT wave that firearm in the rider's face. He drew his firearm out and then pointed it down and away from the rider. Now, could he have drawn it better and kept it closer to him upon drawing; most definitely. But did he "wave the gun in the face" of the rider. Uhhhh...no, he did not.

I also agree with Infidl - When you get a citation, it is the officer waiving his right at that time to take you to jail for that infraction. He is either giving you the chance for your "promise" to show up in court (depending on the infraction) or fining you for the infraction and, again, giving you the chance for your "promise" to pay for that fine and not have to go to court. However, either way he is waiving his right to take you to jail at that time. Everyone thinks that just because the infraction earns you a "citation" (or ticket as most call it) that it means you can't go to jail for it. Wrong answer folks. It's actually up to the discretion of the individual officer on whether you are getting a citation or going to jail over the infraction/offense that occurred. The court is the one who defines whether the arrest and/or citation was right or wrong and judges and sentences accordingly.

Another thing - On the 2nd video, this "Carlos" guy states that the officer didn't identify himself when he exited the vehicle and that's crap. You can hear him on the first video (the rider's video) where he stated he is a state police officer. Unfortunately, the officer should have stated it as soon as he exited his vehicle, but he did identify himself.

So, it would be nice if these people get their facts straight before they go on TV as a spokesperson.

Also, as a side note, I think it's TOTAL CRAP that the rider is being charged on "wiretapping". I think there should be no problem with people using GoPros to videotape their rides and if that includes an officer stopping you, then so be it.
