Apr 9 - Body camera footage shows Windsor traffic stop
 

 
Below is one of the body camera videos from the incident. Viewers should be advised there is foul language and content that might be graphic to some audiences:



In his lawsuit, the U.S. Army officer alleges two police officers escalated things during a traffic stop, pulled guns on him, then pepper-sprayed and hit him.

Two Windsor police officers are facing a civil lawsuit that alleges they acted aggressively towards a minority, uniformed Army officer during a traffic stop.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in the U.S. District Court for Eastern Virginia in Norfolk.

Documents from the lawsuit claim officers Joe Gutierrez and Daniel Crocker (the defendants) pulled over a newly-bought SUV for not having a rear license plate on December 5, 2020.

They approached with guns pointed at the car, gave opposing instructions to a uniformed soldier behind the wheel, and then pepper-sprayed him -- all while threatening him with different charges and levels of violence for noncompliance.

“I can think of absolutely no reason under the sun as to why those officers should have exited their vehicles with their firearms trained on my client or any other,” explained lawyer Jonathan Arthur.

Arthur is U.S. Army Second Lieutenant Caron Nazario's lawyer. He told 13News Now the lawsuit was filed because Nazario’s constitutional rights were violated.

“Everyone has heard, I believe, in the doctrine of qualified immunity that protects law enforcement if they don't violate clearly established laws," Arthur said. "In this case, we believe that both the United States Supreme Court, the Fourth Circuit, and the Virginia Supreme Court have all said that this type of behavior is completely inappropriate."

He said the plaintiff had calmly deferred to the officers' instructions starting from the moment the police lights started flashing.

"My client didn't do anything wrong," Arthur said.

There were recorded conversations where Officer Crocker tells dispatch that the driver is slowing down to pull over as requested, and Officer Gutierrez said based on training experience, the decision to pull over at a well-lit gas station meant the driver was probably a minority.

According to the documents, which reference police body camera footage, before the officers got to Nazario's car, they would have been able to see that he had a temporary license plate taped to his rear window.

Nazario's lawyer wrote that the plaintiff had calmly deferred to the officers' instructions starting from the moment the police lights started flashing.

Nazario says once he was out of the vehicle, after being sprayed, the officers struck him multiple times, handcuffed him, and interrogated him.

“There was no justification for that type of conduct or at least not under the law,” explained Arthur.

The documents say the officers ended up letting Nazario go after threatening to charge him with obstructing justice, eluding police, and a*saulting a law enforcement officer (with the intent of derailing Nazario's military career).

In the lawsuit's introduction, Nazario's lawyer wrote that this was a racially-based violation of justice. Court documents mention Nazario's heritage, which is Latinx and African-American.

"These cameras captured footage of behavior consistent with a disgusting nationwide trend of law enforcement officers, who, believing they can operate with complete impunity, engage in unprofessional, discourteous, racially-biased, dangerous, and sometimes deadly abuses of authority, (including issuing unreasonable comply-or-die commands), ignore the clearly established mandates of the Constitution of these United States and the state and local laws, and usurp the roles of legislator, judge, jury, and executioner; substituting the rule of law for their arbitrary and illegal conduct," the suit reads.

13News Now reached out to Windsor Police Department to see what law enforcement officials had to say about the lawsuit.

No one at the department had a comment.

first time I'm hearing about this incident

cops are bozos, they won't even wait until a n*gga is out of the uniform to do this sh*t but once again, goes to show that if your skin is a certain color or darker, the cops won't care about what uniform you're wearing

their us against them mentality is what gets them k*lled "in the line of duty", and they can't get that through their collectively thick skulls. How did they think that that would look, locking up a lieutenant in uniform in the active duty military

imagine if American police were like... ship captains or pilots. Every time they fu*ked up a ship sank or plane crashed. How fast would reform come if they were working in these two professions? but these clowns have the nerves to f*ght back at reform and say sh*t like "thin blue line" and "back the blue"

idk about ships but I know about the aviation industry. I'm doing a minor in aviation safety right now. Every time a major accident occurs, there's major changes to rules, regulations, procedures, and technology. But with policing, it's "it's an isolated incident" and "well, if he just complied" or my favorite "he was a petty thief and/or drug addict anyway"

why they approaching with guns out?if they scared why not approach with tasers?

just like they dont want us to be afraid of them, they shouldnt be afraid of us when they pull us over

these two cops are pathetic and i hate when the releases partial video.

these ppl who get a*saulted need to get a dream team like oj had. im sure theres some A1 money hungry lawyers who can eat the case.

Problem with cops like this is they feel like once they give an order, even if they subsequently find out it was for no reason, it should be followed.

they CHASED the guy, or at least they thought they were chasing him (that's why the guns were out)

in that situation, you don't sit in your car and demand to know why you are being stopped

but then the cops go lying about the situation

“""Realizing that they had acted illegally,” the lawsuit says, the officers told Nazario that if he “would chill and let this go,” they would release him without filing any charges. But if he fought it, which Gutierrez acknowledged he had the right to do, Nazario would be charged and would have “to go to court and notify his command.”

Afterwards, the two officers filed reports with “near identical” misstatements, the lawsuit says.

They reported that Nazario refused to show his hands and slapped theirs away when they tried to get him out. Gutierrez wrote that he gave knee strikes to Nazario’s legs because he wouldn’t get on the ground and resisted arrest.

Gutierrez wrote in his report that he felt he had two options: charge Nazario with obstruction, eluding, and a*saulting an officer, or release him without any charges."""
