Mesa, AZ – According to a video from a former WWF wrestler and cannabis advocate, when an employee at a cannabis dispensary left work and drove down the street to a local gas station, she was immediately confronted and harassed by police.

Witnesses claimed that as soon as the unnamed female arrived at the gas station, Mesa Police swooped in and quickly placed her in handcuffs. Sean Allen Morley, who at one time in his professional life went by the name Val Venis in the WWF/WWE, wasted no time in questioning the validity of the traffic stop, which took place on the gas station’s property. On his Youtube channel, Morely described the interaction:

“Here is my interaction with UNACCOUNTABLE & NON-RESPONSIVE #ThugLawEnforcement in Mesa, Arizona. I drove into QT Gas station and watched a SCARED young woman getting arrested without being told why she was being arrested.”

Morely could have been arrested for “obstruction of justice” as his over the top questioning could’ve easily been interpreted as interfering with the officers. But instead of arresting him, the officers engaged and explained in no uncertain terms that they would not speak with him in detail about the specifics of the case. The former professional wrestler, whose height is around 6’3″, must have been intimidating enough for the officers to give some insight into why they arrested his co-worker.

Since his retirement from the World Wrestling Federation, Morely has been a cannabis advocate. But even in a state where marijuana is legal for medicinal purposes, pot users still get harassed.

Morely told The Free Thought Project that the woman was minding her own business when police officers approached her and ordered her to step away from the car.

“That young lady is a Budtender at the same MMJ dispensary I work at. She literally left for lunch to drive 30 secs up the street to pump gas. From what I’ve been told by witnesses and her word was she was simply pumping gas when a cop rolled up, got out of his car and started barking orders to step away from the car.”

The former professional wrestler said he could only imagine what was going on when they put his co-worker into police custody. He said his first thoughts were:

“She was scared shitless. She had no clue she had done wrong. I pulled in for lunch after the fact. My thoughts are because she was wearing her state issued MMJ dispensary agent card, I’m thinking one of the cops thought ‘man, if I could get a blood draw from her, I bet I could get an easy DUI.'”

Morely took action. He directly approached the officers and demanded to know what “probable cause” they had to approach the young lady who was simply pumping gas. He put his cell phone camera in their face and demanded to know. He wouldn’t take “no” for an answer, calling the police officers “tyrants” who were actually “railroading” the woman into accepting a felony charge of DUI. “Here is AZ, even with your MMJ card, they will railroad you for having THC in your system even when you are not impaired,” he said.

He vehemently disputes the notion Mesa police had any probable cause to pull over his co-worker and suspected that just because they saw her leaving a dispensary, they assumed they had enough probable cause to suspect she was operating the vehicle while under the influence of THC. He told TFTP why he chose to get in the officers’ faces and demand answers.

“Obviously a MMJ dispensary agent card is not a fact that would satisfy the element of reasonable suspicion So I wanted to question them about the facts they used to justify reasonable suspicion or probable cause for the record before they get back to the PD and manufacture some facts and they would all be on the same page with their story.”

Morley told TFTP his co-worker was eventually charged with a DUI, a result of being targeted by Mesa police for driving away from a legally owned and operated AZ dispensary. States like Arizona have a problem because although cannabis is legal for medicinal purposes, possession is still considered a felony by the state if a person does not have a medical marijuana card. In states like North Carolina, where cannabis possession has been decriminalized, it considered a misdemeanor.

As TFTP previously reported, the Arizona State Supreme Court ruled in December 2016 that the mere presence of THC in a motorist’s system is not sufficient grounds to charge someone with DUI. However, as Arizona has trained several police officers as Drug Recognition Experts, whose testimony supersedes even a drug test, it remains to be seen if law enforcement will challenge the Supreme Court’s ruling with further litigation.

One such so-called expert from Buckeye Police Department took down an autistic teenager he reportedly assumed was a meth addict, bringing shame to the department, along with calls for the “expert” to be trained to discern a meth-head from an autistic citizen.

  1. The question Sean Allen Morley should have asked when questioning the officer’s level of intoxication is about the use of steroids. That would be the most intimidating question because some officers are using it and other officers know it. Never call police names, like thug, even in an article. You will be dismissed by most of society – the mainstream. These police are dangerously empowered with the privilege of indiscriminate use of deadly force while having qualified immunity. You have to be much more intelligent at this than them.

    • Yeah, an ex pro wrestler asking that question. Yeah, who is the one on steroids? That slightly pudgy looking cop, or val venis? Did you ever see the pictures of that guy. Nope, no steroids there.

      • There is a high level of steroids use among police officers. There is a high level of obesity too; about 40%. As an ex-pro wrestler, I am sure he knows how steroids cause “roid rage.” If the officer is not a steroid user, it is highly likely he knows one who is abusing them within his department.

        The fact is police threaten the public safety they are sworn to protect and violate the laws they are paid to enforce more often than the general population.

        It is a statistical fact and when they point a finger at me, three of them are pointing back at them. Not every motor vehicle violation is due to pot or alcohol. I am just as threatened by a cop reading his computer or using his phone as any drunk on the street.

        MY POINT was, and is, do not engage in the behaviors police do, including name calling, as it reduces YOUR credibility. Police who do those things have none.

        • There is not a high level of steroid use in law enforcement. There are more steroids in lapd than probably the rest of the law enforcement community combine, minus Florida. Like I mentioned in another post, I have known about 4 likely steroid using cops out of several hundred police officers. As for obese cops, I have known a few more, but the majority are fit, and even most of the obese cops worked out.

          • You are in denial. Few of them could pass the test they first did to get the job after five years and almost none of them after the age of 44. Since 40% of them are obese, no where near HALF of them are fit. They cannot even run a 15 minute mile, much less two miles.

            Despite the illegality of taking steroids without a prescription and the known dangers of steroid abuse the problem continues to grow in the law enforcement community. In Minneapolis, a police sergeant was charged for possession of steroids. He admitted to being a user of steroids. In Miami, a police officer was arrested for the purchasing human growth hormone kits (HGH) from a dealer. The dealer had also informed Federal officials that the police officer had purchased anabolic steroids from him on four other occasions. In Tampa, a police officer was sentenced to 70 months in jail for exchanging 1,000 ecstasy tablets from police custody for steroids.

            If you personally knew four steroid users in a metropolitan community, there are likely 400. It is absurd to assume anything from such anecdotal claims.

          • I never said I knew they were on steroids, just suspected because of size and attitude. Hell, I have heard snide comments about me because I have big arms and back, but I have never taken anything you couldn’t but at gnc

          • Sometimes the world is not all about you. My statement about police is still valid and stands… as my citation from the DOJ indicated. This officer was abusive in his accusations, which were used to intimidate. Giving him back a measure of his own accusations was most appropriate.

        • Hey Val penis, you are taking a steroid test next week. Their wellness program is a joke. Professional wrestling has more steroids than any other sport, if you could consider that a sport. Maybe body building has more, but their testing is better

          • Haha, do you really think you know more about pro wrestling than a guy named Mr. Wrestling III? Sean Morley doesn’t display any signs of steroid use other than being big. Lots of people get big without steroids. He never had back acne throughout his entire career. Never had muscle tears. Some of us just do this thing called exercise.

          • Nope. Don’t know much about wrestling, and that is a good thing. But steroids are fucking rampant as hell, and this convo started because someone is claiming the cops are roided up, and that is laughable when compared to a pro wrestler.

          • No, it isn’t. The cops are more likely to be on roids than wrestlers as this point. In the 80’s, sure, the wrestlers were all sorts of roided. Things have changed drastically.

  2. And THIS, right here folks, is government: Robot-like actions backed by nothing but denial and a complete and total disregard for facts or reason.

    It must be eradicated from existence without compromise or mercy.

  3. That guy was an idiot. No, cops don’t have to explain shit to some guy walking up to a stop after the fact. He is the one that has zero information of what took place.

      • He didn’t get arrested because those cops showed incredible patience and restraint. So trying to help a co-worker under arrest is a good thing? Geez.

        And people wonder why cops are so nervous in these situations. People who are complete strangers to them come out of nowhere, shouting and cussing with phone cameras on. By all means, tape them. But do it from a respectable distance and keep your mouth shut. Otherwise you run the risk of sitting right next to your buddy in the back of the police car. And for good reason!

    • Cops by law have to explain 1 why they stopped you and 2 why they are placing you under arrest…… That cop did either. That is the point the point the guy in the video was trying to make…………Crazytrain2 did you know by law you do not have to surrender your i.d insurance and registration papers until the officer tells you the reason they have stopped you? I had a 45 min standoff with a dumb ass cop over that….he called for back up cuz i was compliant when back up arrived they told that dumb ass i was correct and let me go……to this day idk y that idiot stopped me, i guess he was to dumb to make something up like the rest of the cops do….

      • They don’t have to explain to some mouthy idiot that shows up after he fact. There are privacy issues until that criminal complaint is written, but the real reason is they simply don’t have to explain anything to him and his phone.

        • Did you even read the comments? It was not just some “mouthy idiot that showed up after the fact” He knew and worked with the woman and qoute “She was scared shitless. She had no clue she had done wrong. I pulled in for lunch after the fact.” He knew she had no clue why she was being arrested and was asking on her behalf and there are no privacy issues because once they book you its public domain………. notice my profile pic? its a real mugshot of me posted on line when i was wrongfully arrested. By law the cop has to inform the person he is arresting why he is arresting them………….. its kidnapping other wise. That “idiot with a phone” is a good Samaritan in my book because his video brought to light just another asshole cop abusing and misusing the law. You did reads how his “probable cause was nothing more then her shirt and her leaving the place she works right? And how it got dismissed? Cops should have to pay for wrongful arrest and lack of police work. Hell anyone can round people up throw them in a cage and hope a charge sticks………… i lost 6 months of my life over a wrongful arrest because it was easier for some dumb ass to arrest me off hear say. Once the real criminal was caught they dropped my case and turned me loose i didnt even get a fucking apology from those bastards…………..

          • “By law the cop has to inform the person he is arresting why he is arresting them…”

            Yeah, but he doesn’t have to inform somebody else who arrives on the scene yelling with phone out and arms waving JACK SQUAT. “Good Samaritans” have no business interfering in someone else’s arrest.

            The cops had no way of knowing who he was and his relationship to this lady. So you’re saying any of us have the right to roll up on cops engaged in an arrest and make demands that they tell us what’s going on? GTHOH.

      • No, Larry, they don’t. At most, they might say what the charges are, but they do not have to articulate their probable cause and be cross examined on the scene.

  4. I was stopped in Kent, WA as soon as I pulled out of a smoke shop years ago. The cop said he stopped me because the light to display my license plate wasn’t working.

    • I was stopped for a “dim” license plate light. The fact is he was trying to catch me in a DUI because I was driving after 11PM in a smaller town.

      Officer Jackson had seen me walking drunk several months previously and I had refused to ID myself. It was my son’s 21st birthday and we were walking home from drinking and playing pool. I refused to be intimidated. He called for backup and his co-workers said who I was because they had seen me earlier. From then on, he harassed me. At one point he almost hit me because he was speeding.
