RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TN (WBIR) -- As law enforcement agencies continue to patrol East Tennessee roads for drunk drivers this weekend, a Youtube video posted by a Middle Tennessee man has some questioning what their rights are when they're pulled over at a DUI checkpoint.

On July 4, a Rutherford County Sheriff's Deputy ordered the driver to stop at a checkpoint near Murfreesboro. In the video, the driver repeatedly questions the deputy's orders, saying he has a constitutional right to do so.

The deputy goes on to search the drivers car without his consent. The deputy even says the driver is "innocent" in the video.

So far, more than 1.5 million people have watched that clip.
