High-risk traffic stop in Windsor | December 5, 2020

The Army second lieutenant slowed down on U.S. Route 460, flipped on his turn signal, and looked for a lighted place to pull over because it was dark outside, according to a lawsuit filed last week in U.S. District Court in Norfolk. Less than a mile away, Nazario saw a BP gas station. He drove his Chevrolet Tahoe into the parking area and stopped, the lawsuit said. In the meantime, Windsor Police Officer Daniel Crocker radioed he was attempting to pull over a vehicle with no rear license plate and tinted windows. He said the driver was “eluding police” and he considered it a “high-risk traffic stop,” according to a report he submitted afterward and was included in the court filing. The written report acknowledged, however, that the SUV was traveling at a low rate of speed. Another officer, Joe Gutierrez, was driving by when he heard Crocker’s call, saw him attempting to pull the vehicle over, and decided to join the traffic stop. What happened after that has been disputed by the officers and Nazario. But the police officers’ own body cam footage - and a cellphone recording made by Nazario - back up the Army lieutenant’s version of events, according to his attorney, Jonathan Arthur of Richmond. “It’s all right there in the footage,” the attorney said. Arthur said the lawsuit was filed in federal court because it alleges Nazario’s constitutional rights were violated. Windsor Police Chief Rodney “Dan” Riddle did not respond to a request for comment. ✸Full description for this video with links and photos is available on Patreon! ▶︎Join Patreon: ▶︎Join Discord: ▶︎Join Twitter: ▶︎Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only!
