VIDEO: Marijuana Retailer Under Investigation After Berating Trooper In Her Parking Lot

Moses Lake, WA – A Washington marijuana retailer is now under investigation by the state licensing board after she launched into a profanity-laced tirade and berated a Washington state trooper for conducting a traffic stop outside her shop (video below).

Moses Lake Police Department (MLPD) Chief Kevin Fuhr said Amy Dalluge, owner of The Green Seed dispensary, has repeatedly harassed and berated his officers in the past, even when she was the one who called them for help, Source One News reported.

Chief Fuhr said Dalluge also has a history of verbally attacking Grant County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) deputies and Washington State Patrol (WSP) troopers.

But when cell phone footage showing the shop owner berating WSP Trooper Yasin Anwar and aggressively shoving her hands in his face began circulating online, the chief decided enough was enough, Source One News reported.

He confirmed he filed a complaint with the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board accusing Dalluge of harassing and obstructing law enforcement, according to the news outlet.

The WSP has also opened an investigation into the dispensary owner and said any potential charges will be forwarded to the Grant County Prosecutor’s Office, Source One News reported.

The video was recorded in September of 2022, after Trooper Anwar initiated a traffic stop near Dalluge’s shop due to a seatbelt violation.

The driver pulled into the parking lot of The Green Seed, Source One News reported.

Trooper Anwar was speaking with the driver when Dalluge stormed over to the traffic stop and began accosting him and demanding that he leave the area.

A passenger inside the vehicle recorded the incident and posted the footage to social media earlier this year, FOX News reported.

“Get the f—k off my private f—king property!” the enraged shop owner demanded. “He’s already done his job and he’s refusing…You’re done! Get the f—k off my f—king lot! You’re done!”

Dalluge jabbed her finger at the trooper and ultimately threw her hands up in his face and made vulgar gestures with her middle fingers.

Trooper Anwar remained calm and patient and told Dalluge he needed to ask the driver a couple more questions, the video showed.

“Hurry up!” she angrily demanded before shoving her hand in his face yet again. “I ain’t listening to you.”

The trooper turned his attention back to the driver and asked him if he had any questions about a piece of paper he had given him.

“No, I’m good,” the driver responded.

Trooper Anwar ultimately left the stop and began heading back to his patrol vehicle with Dalluge following close behind, the video showed.

“You’re on my f-king land, you b-h,” Dalluge continued. “You better learn your f-king place.”

She then began making bizarre personal jabs at the trooper, who by this point had completely disengaged from the interaction.

“I’ll f-king take your wife right out of your f-king bed, b-h!” she declared. “Oh wait – you’re not married, huh?”

According to WSP spokesperson Trooper Collin Cumaravel, Dalluge claimed she was upset because she believed having law enforcement officers in her dispensary parking lot was “scaring her customers away,” Source One News reported.

But Trooper Cumaravel said there was absolutely no excuse for her aggressive and vulgar attack on Trooper Anwar.

“Seatbelts are the main contributor to our fatalities that we investigate,” he told Source One News. “For Trooper Anwar to be so verbally berated while trying to do his job is frustrating.”

“I am glad the passenger took that video, and I am proud of Trooper Anwar remaining calm in a clearly frustrating contact,” he added. “She should have never been able to put her hand in his face like that.”

WSP spokesperson Chris Loftis said the incident between Dalluge and Trooper Anwar was “unfortunate,” but that it also highlighted “the calm, firm resolve and professionalism of our Troopers in tense situations,” FOX News reported.

“Our troopers are trained to stay always focused, always prepared and always respectful, even in confrontative situations,” Loftis said. “They recognize they will face uniquely stressful situations each day and their ability to move forward and deescalate agitation and strain with a focus on safety, duty and dignity will best serve the public.”

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board confirmed they have received other complaints about Dalluge and her business in the past, at least one of which resulted in a formal written warning, Source One News reported.

She could have her business license suspended if she is charged with a criminal offense.
