U.S. Border Patrol agents wasted no time in pulling a man out of his car at a checkpoint when he refused to tell them where he was headed and did not consent to having his trunk searched.

“I do not consent to any searches or seizures,” said Rick Herbert, who had a camera planted on the dashboard in front of the driver’s seat.

“What is your reasonable suspicion?”

But the agent, who had already reached inside the window and opened the door, refused to tell him if he had any reasonable suspicion, ordering him to “put your car in park, step out of the vehicle.”

When Herbert again insisted on knowing what reasonable suspicion the agent had that he was committing a crime, the agent grabbed him by the arm and twisted it, trying to pull him out of the car, even though Herbert was strapped in with a seatbelt.

“Hey, dude, stop, I got to unbuckle my seatbelt first,” Herbert told him. “You’re being recorded, just so you know.”

“I know I am,” said the agent, who name tag read “J. Valdivia. “I’m not doing nothing against policy.”

Once Herbert was out of the car, Valdivia shoved him against the window of the back seat where Herbert’s four-year-old son was sitting, handcuffing him.

An agent then stepped into the driver’s seat and drove the car to another area with Herbert’s wife still in the passenger’s seat and his son still in the back seat.

When that agent opened the back door in an attempt to have the child step out, the boy said, “no, no, I don’t like you.”
