Body cam footage shows an officer pull over to assist what looks like a motor vehicle stop. As he gets closer to the scene, it becomes clear something is off.

The police officer approaches the teen that is writing a ticket and sees that he is in plain clothes except for a badge on his belt.

After giving a story about why he pulled the car over, the teen is asked for ID and then says he knows he is “under-equipped.” The officer eventually arrests him.
