Cops are people too. You'd be pissed off if you've been working 8 hours and some jerk gives you attitude too.
I got stopped last year and had some illegal items in my bag.
He asked me and I said yes and told him it was there.
I knew he had no right to search me but I also new that screaming for my rights was going to make things worse.
He asked me for the items and I gladly reached in my bag and gave it to him
The outcome...I was honest,polite and courtious and treated him like a guy just doing his job.
He let me go with no charges,no fines and a handshake.
I did however have a fellow atser with me to prove it if thats what you are asking.
4 police officers involved. The other cops wanted me to be arrested.

What attitude problem did he give the cops if he was sound asleep.

is be polite and not to seem combative...
you can do both while asserting your rights ya know
Lets face it, I'm not a cop... but if someone gets in my face and acts all high and mighty... I'm going to go out of my way to make sure they have a very bad day
Maybe be some awake drunk pissed him off.I know I don't have alot of patience dealing with drunk people either.
The one unsigned contract that EVERY US CITIZEN and person living here has to agree with is: You break our laws and you will be held accountable or forced to comply. The only way the contract can be broken, other than changing the law, is for the person to leave the country. I opted to play by the rules (for the most part ;] Well, what are you gonna do?
Like that video awhile back where the guy gets stopped and immediately starts screaming for his rights when all they wanted to do was ask him a few questions at a checkpoint that was stopping ALL cars.
