VIDEO: Body Cam Video Released After Woman Accuses VA Deputy of Racism

After an accusation of racism during a Virginia traffic stop went viral, the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office has released a full, uninterrupted body cam video of the incident to refute the claim.

Behind the wheel of her car and live on Facebook, Dawn Hilton-Williams described a traffic stop on Route 58 westbound in rural Brunswick County. “I was just bullied by a racist cop, who threatened to pull me out of the car,” said Hilton-Williams in the 11-minute-long Facebook video. “This is where we got lynched. This is where we got lynched, even in today’s day.”

The traffic stop happened on April 27, when Hilton-Williams was heading home to Greensville, SC, after watching her daughter play in a tennis tournament.

In the video, Hilton-Williams said she feared for her life, reports WTVR.

Brunswick County Sheriff Brian Roberts got calls from people who had seen the Facebook video. After reviewing body cam footage of the traffic stop, Roberts said the stop was completely by the book, and his deputy did nothing wrong. And he released the footage to make that clear.
