US Army Officer Caron Nazario sued two Virginia police officers, alleging that they violated his first and fourth amendment rights during a traffic stop in December. One of the two officers was fired, and an investigation is underway.
More context: The officers said they treated the traffic stop as “high risk” because they could not identify a rear license plate, the vehicle had tinted windows, and the driver waited to reach a gas station before pulling over. They subsequently pepper-sprayed Nazario and removed him from the vehicle.
Extra: The lawsuit (source) notes that Nazario is Black and Latino and alleges that the actions may have been racially biased.
