DAVIS COUNTY, UTAH: Almost a year ago, Chase Allan’s mother, Diane Allan, was arrested by cops for a similar reason and body camera footage showed the couple responding to police officers the same sneaky way. Chase Allan, 25, was reportedly shot 12 times by five police officers during a traffic stop in Davis County, Utah on March 1.
Farmington police arrested Chase for an illegitimate license plate from his blue BMW 3 Series until his lack of cooperation prompted police to force him out of his vehicle. “I don’t need the recording and I don’t answer questions,” Chase said during questioning with his police. However, things quickly escalated when the 25-year-old refused to get out of the vehicle and when police tried to pull him out he had a gun on him, prompting officers to discharge their weapons. In a similar scenario, when Diane was arrested by the police, she also refused to comply with police orders.

“That’s not a probable cause!” »
“What is your probable cause for arresting me?” asks Diana. “So for the expired recording,” the officer replied. “It’s not probable cause,” Diane alleged, ABC reported. In a shocking similarity, mother and son refused to provide their names and instead gave officers their passports. “It’s not me. It’s a plastic piece of paper,” Chase said during questioning. “So you have a fraudulent passport. Wonderful,” the officer replied to Chase’s statement.
During Diane’s interrogation, her officer phoned a colleague to find out how to handle the situation. “Is it worth getting her out of her car and arresting her for non-identification?” asked the officer. “No. Probably not,” the co-worker said. Subsequently, the co-worker recommended a ticket for not having a driver’s license and an expired registration document. The dispatcher was able to identify Diane’s information based on her passport, which helped the officer figure out that she had an actively concealed firearms license.
Notably, nearly 16 minutes later, Diane reportedly received two tickets, totaling approximately $100 in fines. But in Chase’s case, he was forced out of the vehicle and 5 minutes later was shot 12 times. Diane filed a lawsuit against the officer in September 2022, claiming she was not under city, state or United States jurisdiction and was a sovereign citizen.
