Police Officer Loses It When Driver Cites His Constitutional Rights At DUI Checkpoint

State Police are reviewing a viral video where an officer is shown opening a DeKalb man’s car door and yelling at the man at a roadside safety checkpoint, though it appears the officer did not violate any policies, according to police. The video showing the confrontation between DeKalb resident Ryan Taylor and Illinois State Police has received more than 700,000 views and 9,000 Facebook shares. The incident was captured on film Saturday at a roadside safety checkpoint on North Annie Glidden Road. Taylor, who did not respond to the Northern Star’s requests for comment, published the video online, including on Facebook, YouTube and LiveLeak. The video shows Taylor going through the roadside safety checkpoint. Taylor asks if he is being detained and an officer says he is not free to leave. An officer opens Taylor’s door and tells Taylor to show his driver’s license and proof of insurance while Taylor says the officers’ actions are unconstitutional. What do you think? Was the officer’s behavior acceptable?
