From the story: "Immediatly the officer comes up with his cuffs drawn and arrest my buddy," McLawhorn said "He never tells us why he's arrested."
It isn't McLawhorn's business as to why his buddy is being arrested. They should have sat down and shut up. On the side of the road isn't the time or place to argue with an officer. Do as instructed and you get to go home. Interfere, you may get to go to jail. They got to go to jail.
