Ankeny, IA- The city of Ankeny issued an apology Thursday on behalf of an officer who initiated a peculiar line of questioning about frisbee golf and marijuana during a minor traffic stop.

Video surfaced last week of an unidentified motorist being pulled over by an Ankeny officer, who is also currently unidentified. The driver was stopped for not having his headlights on and the interaction with the officer was benign at first, with the officer simply giving the man a warning.

However, the officer apparently noticed the driver had disc golf equipment inside the car and immediately asked him about the sport after returning the man’s identification.

“You play frisbee golf?” the officer asked. “I do,” the man replied, “a lot actually, I play over at Heritage.”

“Okay, I need you to answer me a question. Why is it that everybody that plays Frisbee golf smokes weed?” the officer then asked.

“It’s not everybody,” the driver responded, but the officer pressed on. “It’s everybody, man. You can’t tell me you never smoked weed.”

The driver said he wouldn’t answer that question, and the officer decided to attempt to search his vehicle. “How much weed do you have in the car today?” the officer asked. The driver responded there was none in the car or on him, and the officer said “You understand you’re free to go and everything, but you wouldn’t have a problem with me looking through your car?”

The driver denied the officer permission and said that he wouldn’t allow a search simply because he had a disc golf bag, to which the officer replied “so you have weed in the car then is what you’re saying?”

Despite the driver’s assertion that he had no marijuana, the officer repeatedly accused him of possession, apparently convinced that the driver’s refusal to disclose whether or not he had ever smoked marijuana was admission of guilt.

The officer eventually gave up his pursuit to search the driver’s car and let him go. The incident seemed to embarrass the city of Ankeny enough to apologize for the officer’s behavior on Facebook:
