"You are required by law to wear a seat belt. Put your damn seat belt on. Pull it over," McClain shouts at the officer in the video. In the end, it was McClain who was cited for reckless driving, seen in the video swerving in front of the officer to make a stop. "When the light turned green, he took off at such a high rate of speed, and I could see it was a K-9 unit, so I was concerned for the possibility of a dog being inside," McClain says. "I said, 'Sir, you need to wear your seat belt,' and he started laughing." "It set me off. I was mad as hell." What was his plan after he stopped the officer? "I just wanted to speak with him, express my concern for the animal's safety, and I would require him to put a seat belt on. If he refused, I would call the Southgate Police Department and have them come and ticket him." McClain has made a hobby of catching violators. He has a collection of pictures snapped from a McDonald's parking lot of city officials and police officers he says don't buckle up.
