“That’s when the homeless man came up to me. He said, ‘Hey my name is Dave. I’m from Dallas. I’m down on my luck. Do you have any change,'” said Snider.

Snider said he gave the man some change and drove off.

“I had no idea at all what was about to happen,” said Snider.

After Snider pulled onto I-10, he said a police car with flashing lights and sirens pulled behind him.

“I put my hazards on to let him know, ‘Hey, I see you,'” said Snider. “This is a really bad part of I-10 to be pulled over on, so I was trying to find a safe place to pull over.”

Snider said he was shocked by what the police officer did next.

“He’s screaming. He’s yelling. He’s telling me to get out of the car. He’s telling me to put my hands on the hood,” said Snider.
