In his next response, my buddy would ask if the officer felt it would be crime to drive without a license, to which the officer admitted he did.
In his next response, he'd say, "Officer, now you've admitted this is a criminal investigation and you were looking to see if I had a license." As such, I have to invoke my right under article one, sections seven and nine of the Washington Constitution and I'll need counsel to aid me dealing with this, so I best know how to proceed.
My buddies MO was to ask the officer, in response to his request for license and insurance, if this was a civil or criminal stop. Of course, the cop said civil, then asked for a license, registration and insurance.
