State Trooper Encinia pulls over Bland for failing to signal while turning. During the stop Encia asks Bland to put out her cigarette.

Encina: Would you mind putting out your cigarette, please?

Bland: I’m in my car, why do I have to put out my cigarette?

Encina: Well, you can step on out now

Bland: I don’t have to step out now.

Bland refuses, saying she does not have to step out of the car. Encinia opens the driver’s door and attempts to physically remove Bland from the vehicle.

Encina: I’m going to yank you out of here…I’m going to drag you out of here.

Bland: Don’t touch me, I’m not under arrest.

Encina: You are under arrest!

Bland: I’m under arrest for what? Why am I being apprehended

Encina (pointing Taser at Bland): GET OUT OF THE CAR! I will light you up! NOW!

Bland walks towards the cruiser. Encina tells her to get off the phone. Bland calls him a “pussy ass cop” and berates him. She complains he is hurting her. There is an off-camera altercation that leads to Bland being shoved onto the ground.

Bland: You’re a real man now, you gonna slam me, knock my head in the ground. I got Epilepsy you motherfucker.

Encina: Good, good.
