I thought (I know, a cardinal sin) that cops were taught at least something about differentiating between drunken drivers and those who might be acting "strange" for reasons other than alcohol. The car was stopped. The driver had just been in a crash, which could have caused a head injury. The crash could have injured the driver's hands/arms, or caused the seat belt to jam (been in all three of those situations after a crash - thankfully not all at the same time).
This also brings home the excalating insistance by cops with instantaneous obedience to commands with force compliance being the first (only?) response to not doing as they say. 23 seconds to get out of the car when in an obvious disoriented state? Less than 7 seconds to answer a search warrant knock on the door?
Yes, 23 seconds is a long time (just hold your breath for 23 seconds if you want to test how long it can feel like). But even on my good days it can take me 23 seconds - or longer - to put the car in Park, shut off the engine, unlatch my seat belt, figure out which button unlucks the doors, and pull the handle. (And I truely fear what's going to happen when some over-excited cop in a hurry sees me reaching down on the floor for my cane.)
Cops are not Drill Instructors, this is not Boot Camp, and the only proper response when a cop tells you to junp is not to ask "How high?"
If there is anybody out there who cannot make the connection between what happened in this situation and OCing, please PM me so I can offer you some extended insights. I may not be the expert on the subject, but I have experience that might shed some light.
