Glad to hear everything turned out OK.
My definition of a professional deputy is a little stricter. A genuine professional would not have requested to disarm absent some indication of dangerousness. He was just being reflexive.
Also, the true test of an LEO's professionalism is less how he behaves when he gets assent to a voluntary request than how behaves when he receives a polite verbal refusal to a consensual request. Its at that point one begins to find out whether he is willing to respect rights, and whether he was just pretending voluntariness as a tactic.
Nonetheless, I hope all the soreness is gone with no lasting trouble.
