Bryan, who was driving a separate vehicle, a black Ram TRX pickup, pulled up alongside the SUV.

The situation took a turn for the worse when Bryan exited his vehicle to inquire about the delay in the traffic stop. Despite being warned by the officer to return to his truck, Bryan defiantly responded, "I'll go to jail, let's do it." This led to the singer being handcuffed and placed in the patrol car.
