Total the officer arrested him for 45 minutes without cause. Unsurprisingly the dash cam footage from both officers has been “lost”.
Now as a side note, when asked if you have any weapons your response should be, “I have nothing illegal.”

Because handcuffing someone isn’t arrest unless you decide that it’s arrest. Never mind the fact that force of restraint isn’t legal except in arrest and the argument for the officers safety falls flat unless he places anyone carrying a firearm in cuffs during a traffic stop. Further once his information was run, there was no longer a need for detaining the individual and he should have been left to return on his way.
