Michael Rainey Jr. took to social media to share his experience during an “unlawful” traffic stop.
The “Power Book II: Ghost” star shared a video of a police officer approaching his vehicle with his hand on his gun.
Once the officer realizes he’s being filmed. He tucks the gun back under his shirt.
Michael captioned the video, shared on his IG Story:

Unlawful traffic stop. Didn’t even tell me what I was being pulled for. Just came to the whip yelling and sh*t wit his hand on his gun ???????? this guy also said stop reaching while I was looking for my license, I guess he was tryna come up with a reason to shoot me.

Unfortunately, these unlawful traffic stops happen far too often.
I am happy Michael Rainey Jr. thought to film the encounter. I just may have saved his life.
Please be safe out there.
