Former CNN anchor T.J. Holmes was just a mile from his Atlanta home when he was pulled over by two police cars, so he did what anyone would do in that situation: live tweeted the entire ordeal. He even managed to frame the police car in his driver's side mirror perfectly:
Driving while black ain't no joke! instagr.am/p/NtNk4mt9Xg/— TJ Holmes (@tjholmes) July 30, 2012
When the officer who pulled Holmes over struggled to explain why he had pulled him over, Holmes was furious. He took to Twitter again to share their reasoning for the inconvenience:
Officer's reason for pulling me over: "wanted to make sure you have insurance on the car." I kid you not.— TJ Holmes (@tjholmes) July 30, 2012
Holmes said that the experience might've "soured" his relationship with local law enforcement, and promised to post a detailed account on his blog later. Status doesn't save anyone from a good ol' DWB hold up.
