Unfortunately I couldn't capture the whole incident but I will recap it later. #IsYourCarLegit

The producer says in the video, “The first thing out of his [the officer’s] mouth was ‘Is your car legit?’ First question. Amazing.” He continues to say that he thinks everything will be fine but given the current circumstances you never know. The “circumstance” he is of course referring to is the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

He also tweeted his thoughts about the incident:

Funny thing. While driving tonight I thought to myself, "given where I'm going, let me put my wallet in the passenger seat just in case.."

I was thinking about that Richard Pryor skit. "Officer, I am reaching into my pocket for the wallet that has the license you're asking for"

Luckily for the producer, it was a routine stop, but as he says in his video, “Whenever you get pulled over, pray, and stream.”
