I was pulled over because my car matched the description of one being driven by someone wanted. The officer approached me with his hand poised over his sidearm. He relaxed when he saw I did not match the physical description of the person.
He was courteous enough to give me a short explain of the backstory and let me go on my way.
Anyone can have an interaction with the police with or without influence over the cause.
