This LEO didn't even give him a chance to inform so if I get what he wrote correctly if he had his gun this LEO may have wrote him up or worse. This interaction is exactly why I protect my self if possible just like the LEOs protect their side. I have recorders & video in company trucks & usually have more than one recorder on me at any given time to protect me. Funny thing is a LEO once didn't like it that I was recording our interaction same as he was with his recorder.
Most interactions I have with LEOs are GREAT though.
