Turley told the man he couldn't drive, but he could call someone to come get him and his vehicle. Moody kept trying to get back into his vehicle while he called someone to come get him. Turley told him to stand by his patrol unit, but Moody said he didn't have to listen to him since he wasn't under arrest.
