    Well if you were being aggressive then yes they were withing their rights to handcuff and arrest you.

    If you were being aggressive then yes you probably left them no choice. You may have been stopped because you fitted a description of someone they were looking for and allowing them to search you quietly would probably have been the end to the whole thing.

    Being aggressive is not always a crime.

    Well we don't really know the full story here, if they were being threatening towards the police then I would say they have every right to arrest.

    Yes if they think you might be carrying, drugs, a weapon or stolen property.
    When they search you they have to inform you of the reason, which was it?
