Darnell Dockett tweets his encounter with police

Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett is one of the NFL’s most frequent and explicit users of Twitter, so it was no surprise that, when he was pulled over by law enforcement members Monday, he would tweet the scene.

In a NSFW play-by-play of his traffic stop, which he said was for speeding, Dockett tweeted: “I don't know why the police always messing w/me I'm never gonna let them search my car with out a search warrant! No matter what!”

He isn’t the first to have tweeted about a traffic stop. Chad Ochocinco included photos when he was pulled over in Miami. The Dockett stop appears to have ended quietly, but, for those following along as it unfolded on Twitter, it had its scary, as well as funny, moments.

Police said "do you mind if we look around in your Vehicle?" I said I sure DO! He said "I'm gonna call back up" I said u wanna use my phone?less than a minute ago via UberSocial Favorite Retweet Reply
