DETROIT, MI – A Michigan man brought “citizen’s arrest” to a whole new level when he tried to pull over a Michigan cop. Steve McClain says he’s sick of the double standards after he saw a cop driving without a seatbelt on.

“When the light turned green, he took off at such a high rate of speed and I could see that it was a K9 unit. So I was concerned about the possibility of a dog being inside.  So I said, ‘Sir, you need to wear your seatbelt.’ And he started laughing. It set me off. I was mad as hell,” said McClain.

Though it doesn’t seem like it, McClain says he had a plan on the off-chance the cop pulled over.

“I just wanted to speak with him and express my concern for the animal’s safety and require him to put his seatbelt on. And if he refused, then I would call the Gulfgate Police Department and have them come and ticket him.”

But McClain’s the one in the dog house. He’s turned himself in on reckless driving charges and could face 93 days in jail. McClain plead not guilty. Surprised?!

“That was many years of frustration built up and I just let loose. I feel much better. I don’t regret it!”
