Stopped by Leo one day last week in WVA.

Postby Dave44142 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 5:14 am

One day last week i was stopped in W.VA. by LEO on i 77 between Ripley and the Ohio River. No problem , i told him that i had a C.C.W. and that i was armed and he said no problem, thanks for informing, He checked my proof of insurance and D.L. and and lack of warrants, and let me go, i think it was a fishing trip but i did give him the opening, he was playing by the rules but looking.....the point of this post was that the ccw and fire arm were no cause for alarm...

Ok, i was stopped because the right side tire of the trailer i had in tow went over the white line
on the right side of the highway twice while the LEO was following me. And that is easy to do, the trailer is a full 8 feet wide, the same width as a full size tractor trailer. And i would guess that he was following me because i had the enclosed trailer and thought it a good place to "Fish"

If the driver had been driving through Columbus Ohio the LEO wouldn't even have needed a reason. I was pulled over on I-70 by a deputy who admitted when questioned I did nothing illegal. I was driving an empty cargo van. His excuse for pulling me over was and I quote "Only drug dealers drive that way."

That was kind of my response on the outside. I didn't express it however at the time. What I should've done was request any dash cam video from the Sheriffs dept and filed a complaint. I was tired though and just wanted to get home at the time. I had rode a Greyhound bus all night to arrive in Baltimore in the morning, and drove all day back with the van to western Ohio.

When he pulled me over I thought it was for a tail light out, because I occasionally had a problem with one of the taillight assemblies not making a good ground connection, but it was working fine at that time.

When he approached the car, he opened the passenger side door, with his hand on his handgun, stuck his head inside and looked toward the back of the van, asking me, "What are you hauling?" Not only was the cargo van empty, it didn't even have an interior in the back, just bare metal and steel ribbings. When I asked him why he pulled me over, he gave me a bunch of different reasons, all of which were legal. When I pointed that out to him, that's when he made that comment. So for that deputy, strictly obeying the law was PC for him to stop me. :?

As I drove westbound on I-70 in Ohio, I saw a billboard with a picture of an OSP trooper that said he was trooper of the month. He wasn't trooper of the month because he saved a child from a burning car or anything like that, he happened to pull a car over that had a lot of drugs in it. :roll: I don't know if that kind of stuff is what influenced this deputy or not.

Pulled you over for no reason AND just opened the vehicle's door out of the blue? That is some seriously messed up BS. And people wonder why many have no respect or concern for LEOs.
