Re: Am I Being Blackmailed by the Da
two things very odd about your story:
since you passenger was recording the situation, everything, including the demand to stop recording and the grab at the phone should be great defense to the cops statements.
then, I cannot imagine any cop handcuffing your passenger and not the driver, who was the actual subject of the initial contact and then, after asking of you had a weapon to allow you to remove it from your pocket.
Just very unlikely to happen in today's society.
So, what really happened?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
