Officers Greg McClain and Jonathan Wright stop a car for not having a functional tail light. When the driver could not locate his license, the officers had just cause to detain him and search the car. While searching the vehicle, the man becomes emotional, exclaiming that he is “just a soccer dad” and nothing is in his car. A stolen, loaded revolver is discovered in the backseat. The already convicted felon is sent back to jail.
