I do see that he slipped a little in attempting to explain his actions.
I would have given an order and once having given it I would have just silently arrested the offender.
I also think he should have had a partner. I didn't see one.
One thing that I learned years ago after getting pulled over is to not get out of my car, not make excuses, not make any movements that could be misconstrued and be as polite as possible.
Another thing I learned was that running late at night in the dead of winter with a ski mask on is hazardous when you happen to be a mile or so away from a convenience store that was just robbed by a guy in a ski mask.
One final thing is that it's not a good idea to test the sense of humor that the officer who pulls you over has about him. He might not think you're as funny as you think you are.
