Sarah was having a bad day and decided to make it worse. Sarah vehemently yelled at one of the officers, "What are you looking at?" The officer sheepishly replied "I'm not looking at you", whilst rolling up his window.

Sarah now aggravated at the disrespect, she walked up to the police vehicle and began to pound on the closed window, whilst screaming at the officers.
