He was asked if his car could be searched, to which he denied the officers' permission. They then insisted he go to a second area to talk to other officers to which he insisted he wanted to just be on his way. The officers then brought a dog out and it sniffed around and, according to the pastor, did nothing. However, the officers said the dog had made some motion to show there were drugs or a body in the trunk of the car and that they now had probable cause to search the car without the pastor's permission. He asked them to show what the dog had done but they refused. The pastor refused to exit his vehicle and the cops eventually tased him to get him out of the car. An obvious case of illegal search and seizure, something all OC'ers should look out for and fight. The pastor's personal account of the event is posted below. Note: the first video is his oral account of what happened. The second video is footage he took while being detained.
