HiI am sorry this has happened to you.Unfortunately, yes. The police may get you out of the vehicle and pat you down for their safety. They had a legitimate right to come to the car because it fit the description by witnesses. Once they got to the car, there is probable cause to get all persons out and pat them down without consent and without a warrant.If you have other questions in this regard, please post them here. Otherwise, please rate my answer "good to excellent" so that I may get credit for my time and information. Thank you
