    Got pulled from my car at gun point yesterday!!

    So yesterday I'm coming from wally world round 3:00pm from doing a little shopping. As I come off a major route in my area a gray Malibu followed by 3 cop cars speed up behind me and hit me with the red and blue. Naturally I knew they were cops trying to get by so I moved over to let them all pass. As I moved(I was sitting in traffic behind other cars at the light)the Malibu moved behind me....something aint right right here all of a sudden the cops in the Malibu jump out with their guns drawn yelling "shut the car down... shut the car down" At this point I'm like"you gotta be kidding me"...I complied as ordered, with the car stopped and keys in my hand and both up towards the roof of the car all the officers surrounded my truck in the middle of traffic with guns aimed at me!! It was 2 under covers and 2 state troopers and 3 local PD, now at this time I'm trying not to make any false moves and stay calm as possible. The driver of Malibu comes up to my driver door and opens it up(the window was down due to very sunny day) he then asks if I have any id "YES" I replied..as luck would have it, my wallet was on my cup holder.I was still strapped in my seat belt and asked if I could get it (even tho' it was in front of me I didn't wanna make any wrong moves) he said it was OK. after he gets my id/permit he asks me to step from the truck..before I do I advise him that i have a conceal weapon on my right hip, all of this is said with my hands still in the air. he reaches over retrieves my weapon and proceed to undue my seat belt.I'm pat searched by 2 of the state troopers and told to sit on the curb while they searched my car. 5 minutes passed an the officer who took my weapon came back and asked "are you a Correction Officer? Yes I'am I said..he said he noticed my badge in my wallet then stated the reason he pulled me over like that was that there was a shooting and the description of the vehicle matched my truck. He told everything was fine and he was just doing his job and he apologized for the inconvenience ...I felt the same..they were doing their job and I'm sure if it was me I would handle the situation the same way.The UC places my weapon in the back seat, mags in the front passenger seat and tells me when I pull off don't load up til I'm out of view.He says"you have a right to carry so please by all means carry and stay safe" he also thanked me for being honest and up front about my weapon and license because a lot of people don't say anything until the officer's hand is on their weapon and a possibility of SHTF. I rush home to tell my wife what just happened as I'm telling her there's a knock at my door..I look thur the peephole and it's the UC officer I open it with a puzzled look on my face..."yes" I ask in a weird kinda way. "In all the confusion I forgot to give you your drivers license back" he says. He tells my wife sorry for the scare he gave me jokingly we shake hands and leaves. This incident taught me some valuable lessons...1.realize that cops have a very stressful job and most are excellent at what they do. 2. The UC that came to my home showed me he's a man of great character and integrity. I wont forget this day no time soon

    As a corrections officer are you carrying under peace officer status or on a permit?
    As a LEO myself I was wondering why you did not ID yourself as an officer from the get go.

    Outstanding post and your attitude and reaction to the situation was textbook perfect.

    that must have been quite an ordeal, you know, there are quite a few people (on either side of the law) who would overreact and escalate a situation. But this was handled rather gracefully by both sides.

    Mistaken identity happens all the time. I believe the officers acted correctly for the nature of the call. You also got a good idea what a Felony stop is like, for the felon that is. Glad it all worked out well for you and hope they got the dude they were looking for.

    Whoa....that's pretty wild. You handled it well. That would have given me a big adrenaline dump....maybe another dump too.

    Wow. Must have been one interesting day! I understand the reaction from the officers. I found it interesting that you have a right to carry so please by all means carry and stay safe came after are you a Correction Officer?. I wonder if they would have reacted in the same way if you weren't.

    Wow, that's gotta get your heart racing... Sounds like the cops did what they had to do and handled it pretty well. Did you find out where the shooting happened?

    From the thread title, I thought you got carjacked!

    Glad everyone acted professionally. Friendly fire...isn't.

    Depends on whether the OP's state considers jailers/correctional officers to be "peace officers". Some do, some don't.
