When the deputies approached the car, they saw that the passenger, who was later identified as Jarrett, had alcoholic beverages between his legs and appeared extremely nervous. After he exited the vehicle, deputies asked if they could pat him down for weapons for the safety of the deputies. Jarrett told the deputies no and when they asked a second time, Jarrett said, “It isn’t mine,” as he reached for his waistband.
