Posted: Updated:

Video from a driver who says his vehicle was illegal searched on the Fourth of July is going viral.

According to the description on YouTube, the clip was shot on July 4 at a DUI checkpoint in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

"Rutherford County Sheriff's Deputy AJ Ross orders me to pull over and get out of my car, bullies me around, gets the drug sniffing K-9, lies about me having "Illegal Drugs" in the car, searches without consent, and tells me that it is ok to take away my freedom. All while not being detained. All this harassment because my window was not lowered enough to his preference. I broke no laws whatsoever. All of this on a day that we are supposed to be celebrating freedom and liberty," the driver wrote.

Just hours after the video was posted it had more than 190,000 views.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office said it is reviewing the incident to see if any policy or procedures were violated.
