Actor Michael Rainey Jr. has shared a video of the confrontation he had with a police officer after he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop.
“This guy was bout to shoot me I swear that camera saved my life,” Rainey wrote in the caption to his story. “Look what he does as soon as he looks into the lens. someone please send me his precinct or whatever if you know. These power tripping ass police need they badge taken. Unlawful traffic stop.”
Rainey then further explained that the officer didn’t even tell why he was being pulled over and that he had his hand on his gun.
“Didn’t even pull me over. Didn’t tell me what I was being pulled over for. Just came to whip yelling and shit wit his hand on his gun. This guy also said stop reaching while I was looking for my license, I guess he was tryna come up with a reason to shoot me.”
Rainey believes that the tail end of the altercation, which was caught on camera, saved his live.
