GRANT COUNTY, Wash. — Have you ever wanted to pull over a police officer?

Gavin Seim, a “constitutional activist” from Washington, did just that recently.

Seim said on his website that he spotted the police officer in an unmarked car, so he waved him down. He asked the officer for his ID, telling him it’s against the law to pull over the public using an unmarked vehicle.

The officer at first seems surprised at what Seim has done, and even smiles. By the end, he’s ready to get out of there.

“That’s good to know,” the officer tells Seim after his explanation.

Seim eventually lets the officer go, telling him to “be safe out there.”
