Man Pulled Over By Police, Cops Frozen After He Utters One Word

There are certain things police officers don’t want to hear when they pull someone over, and one of those things is that the occupant of the vehicle has a loaded handgun. While that can lead to all sorts of problems if the situation is not handled correctly, this driver has shared his tale of how things went down when it happened to him.

As the US Herald shares, a driver named Matt was pulled over for a routine traffic stop, but he was quite concerned about something he had in his car.

"As I kept my hands firmly locked at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel I immediately stated…..For your safety and mine, sir, I would like to inform you that I am a legally armed citizen. I have a concealed carry permit in my wallet," he shared on social media.

The officer took possession of the weapon, and Matt volunteered to be physically searched for good measure. The situation was quickly defused before it turned into something that could have led to a horrible misunderstanding, and Matt is hoping it can serve as an example for how to handle yourself around law enforcement.
