In Evansville, Indiana—at least—it can get you arrested:
"The officer jumped out and says, ‘What are you doing throwing your hands up at us?’" Madison said. "He is talking to me as he is coming toward me. I tried to explain, but I couldn’t get a word in edgewise."
He said the officer’s angry attitude made him feel angry and alone.
"It was like everything had disappeared, and I was there alone and I got scared," he said.
Madison said he knew Bolin from their community involvements and began to call him on his cellphone hoping to diffuse the situation. However, the officer told him to put the phone down. Madison said that when he hesitated, the officer grabbed his arm holding the phone, causing Madison to flinch.
Before he knew it, Madison said, the officer had his stun device out. “It was literally maybe inches from my face,” he said. “I immediately threw my hands in the air. What he asked me to do I was more than willing to do. I said ‘Please don’t hurt me.’ The next thing I know I’m laying down the ground and they cuffed me.”
