LEO encounter/motor accident
So i went to the movies to go see Mac Gruber. My friends and I had a great time and we left. My friend that rode to the theater with me went home with a girl and I went to get in my truck. The guy next to me was in a Grand Marquis. I went to pull foward to exit the space and as I cut my wheel, I felt myself slowing down, turned to look and saw his car moving. He was not in the car, so i figured i must have hit him:aargh4: now my 07 Silverado has a massive dent in the side that will probably cost around a thousand bucks to fix. I called police and requested an officer for a report. I notified the dispatcher that i have a license to carry and was doing so at the time. She said ok, I will let the officer know. We hung up and I waited by my truck. The owner came out of his movie with his girlfriend and I introduced myself told him what happened and the first things out of his mouth were, what are you going to do about your truck. We talked and laughed about how I had a massive dent, and he only had a cracked headlight. Then about 10 minutes after the original call, I got a phone call from the police. They asked me if I had a license to carry(which I already told them I did) and then they asked me to secure my firearm before the officer arrived. I did so and when the officer arrived I presented my permit and he asked where it was. I told him where my gun was and he said ok, lets make sure it stays there. I said ok. After he got both licenses and registrations he went to the door of my truck and told me to unlock it. I did so and he retrieved my firearm. I told him that I cleared it but that he should probably do the same. As i was saying this, he was already clearing my firearm, and he put it in his car for "officer safety" After he took an hour for paperwork, he brought the papers back up to each of us. He then went to his car, brought me my firearm and handed it to me piece by piece. He said he always field stripped handguns before returning them and that it was his choice to do so, not department policy. I understand the reason for him taking my weapon, sort of. But the fact that I had secured it, unloaded it, and locked it in my truck showed I meant no threat, and I even offered that the officer could take my keys so i could not get to my weapon. Not to mention the fact that he started by saying, lets leave it where it is. I am mad that he field stripped my weapon, possibly damaging it and rendering it useless in the future. I understand removing the weapon from the situation. But i was sitting on his hood, with my gun locked in my truck and the ammo in my pocket.
Treo, I think I might have misjudged you once or twice.
