Ironically, it was independence day in McAlester, Oklahoma when Blake and his wife Britni were stopped for the absurd ‘offense’ of a license plate bulb not shining.

Blake is no dummy and knows extortion when he sees it, so he peacefully resisted.

“Britni and I have more time than money right now. So if he wants to pull me over for something ridiculous, I’d rather make him waste two hours of time filling out a police report stating he arrested me for a license plate light bulb…On the 4th of July.”

In the end, the they are let go and were not extorted.

Way to go Blake and Britni.
