A Utah law student who was shot and killed by cops after refusing to obey previously butchered officers during his mother’s ‘Sovereign Citizen’ court hearing just six months earlier.
Chase Allan, 25, can be heard in new audio from foxnews clashing with police while his mother Diane was tried for driving with invalid license plates.
Both Allan and Diane are believed to be potential supporters of the ‘sovereign citizen’ movement, meaning that people do not believe in the legitimacy of the US government or authorities such as the judicial system.
In the new audio, a bailiff can be heard entering the courtroom and dragging him into custody, where he yells, ‘This is battery and assault! This is treason!
The September 21 incident erupted just months before Allan was shot and killed during a heated traffic stop after he was caught driving without a license plate.

Revealing audio has been unearthed from inside the Davis County Justice Court in Utah, where Allan can be heard berating officers six months before his fatal encounter with police.
Newly released audio reveals Allan and his mother Diane’s disregard for the law, and the hearing descended into chaos after a bailiff entered the courtroom with a warrant for the law student’s arrest during his mother’s trial.
In front of the document, Allan can be heard firing aggressively: ‘What court order? Please provide probable cause!
Amid his vocal protests, he was asked if anything could be done to make him comply, to which he replied: “I’m not complying.”
Diana can also be heard repeatedly yelling at the officers to “let him go”, adding: “You absolutely know this is inappropriate.”
The fierce tug-of-war led to Diane calling 911 from inside the courtroom, claiming that “someone was being assaulted” during her hearing.
Allan was initially detained on March 1 after he was caught driving with a license plate that read: “Notice, you cannot rent a private car.”
Shocking body camera footage revealed the lead up to the fatal traffic stop, where Allan refused to get out of his car before officers said they noticed a weapon.
Allan’s family continue to insist that he was killed by police and that they only found out about his death through media reports.
THE SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT? CONSPIRACY THEORISTS WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE RULE OF LAW
‘Sovereign citizens’ do not believe that they are bound by federal or state law, or that they have to comply with any type of law enforcement.
Many also often do not believe that they are required to pay taxes. The FBI considers the group to be an extremist organization.
Well-known members include Terry Nichols, the Oklahoma City bomber.
In 2010, two sovereign citizens shot and killed two police officers after being pulled over in Arkansas.
‘The sovereign citizens do not represent an anarchist group, nor are they a militia, although they sometimes use or buy illegal weapons. Rather, they operate as individuals with no established leadership and only meet in loosely affiliated groups to train, help each other with paperwork, or socialize and talk about their ideology.
‘They may refer to themselves as ‘constitutionalists’ or ‘freemen’, which is not necessarily a connection to a specific group, but rather an indication that they are free from government control. They follow their own set of laws. While philosophies and conspiracy theories can vary from person to person, their core beliefs are the same: the government operates outside of its jurisdiction. Because of this belief, they do not recognize federal, state, or local laws, policies, or regulations,” says a 2011 FBI document on the group.
Many do not believe that they are bound by taxes, so they often do not pay them.
‘They often don’t pay taxes; that’s pretty standard across the board, many won’t pay for their car registration, they won’t get car insurance, they won’t get licenses of any kind,’ Rachel Goldwasser of the Southern Poverty Law Center told FOX News.
The move is based on a decades-old conspiracy theory that the government was secretly replaced and that the royal government follows admiralty law.
The audio does not include the lead up to the hostility, however, a probable cause affidavit for Chase’s arrest that day states that it was “disruptive and noncompliant.”
The filing adds that he refused to identify himself and did not “obey Davis County Court officers and began to resist the officers.”
He spent the night in jail after being arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer, disrupting a meeting, making/possessing burglary tools, and failing to disclose his identity.
Chase Allan’s refusal to reveal his identity was repeated during his fatal traffic stop on March 1.
Police say they first pulled over the young law student after he was caught driving with a license plate reading “Notice, Private Car Not For Hire.”
After repeatedly rebuffing officers’ attempts to remove him from the vehicle, one of the officers opened the door and grabbed him.
But when the officer pulls him out of the car, the stop spirals out of control as another officer yells, ‘Gun, gun, gun!’
Moments later, the arresting officers shot Allan multiple times and later pronounced him dead at the hospital.
After the shooting, Allan’s devastated family revealed that they only found out he had died after seeing the incident on news reports.
Earlier this month, Diane opened up about her ‘funny’ and ‘lovely’ son.
In a statement to FOX13she said: “(He) was known by everyone in his community to be loving, caring and kind and would do anything for someone in need,” she wrote.
“He was always selflessly helping and protecting others in need.”
The grieving mother added that Allan had a “shy and quiet demeanor” but was quick to make friends who she said will remember him fondly.
“He was always selflessly helping and protecting others in need. He has been studying law for the past few years and was a patriot who did what he could to defend the freedom of the people in his community,’ he said.
Allan’s family accused the police department of illegally killing their loved one and accused the police of a cover-up.
