Officer Brian Encina (while writing ticket): You seem very irritated.
Sandra Bland: I am, I really am…..(something slightly unintelligible, about how she was just “getting out of your way”)
Encina: Are you done?
Bland: You asked me what was wrong and I told you….
Encina: Mind putting out your cigarette please?
Bland: I’m in my car, why do I have to put out my cigarette?
Encina: You can step on out now.
Bland: I don’t have to step out of my car.
Encina: Step out of the car….
Bland: You do not have the right….
Encina: Now step out or I will remove you…I’m giving you a lawful order get out of the car now or I’m gonna remove you…
Bland: I’m calling my lawyer.
Encina: I’m gonna yank you out of here….
Bland: Don’t touch me, I’m not under arrest.
Encina: You are under arrest.
Bland: I’m under arrest for what ? For what?…
Encina: Get out of the car now!
