Elandon Roberts says he was harassed by police officer in March

13 Juillet, 2019, 05:04 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Although being pulled over, Roberts said he wasn't told for nine minutes why he had been stopped. "I told him to get back in and he wouldn't comply".

Roberts's attorney, Jennine Hovell-Cox, told USA Today Sports that she requested the Fort Bend County (Texas) District Attorney to open an investigation into the March 10 traffic stop for speeding.

"Unfortunately, these types of things are happening all too often to African Americans", he said. "People are becoming desensitized to them".

USA Today obtained dashcam footage of Roberts' incident with the Fort Bend Sheriff's Department outside his Richmond home on March 10. Being harassed in your own yard simply because you are a "big black man" should never become the norm. Roberts didn't argue with Watkins during the traffic stop and asked to talk to Watkins during the heat of the moment, according to USA Today. To the person being harassed, it is frightening, disrespectful and embarrassing.

"I have no interest in any financial gain from releasing this story".

"My only hope is that these types of bias-based traffic stops can end and that, perhaps, other black drivers might see how to deescalate a threatening situation", he said.

In Roberts' filed complaint, he said he "felt so harassed I couldn't even remember where my insurance paper was in my vehicle". The big black man got out of the auto.

Roberts was allegedly pulled over for driving 59 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone and failing to provide insurance. "He wouldn't comply. I had to yell at him pretty hard to comply". But Perez reported that there are no court records that show Watkins entered the citation. In the complaint, he reportedly wrote he "felt so harassed I couldn't even remember where my insurance paper was in my vehicle".

Roberts' attorney made a request to conduct a separate inquiry into the incident but was directed by the local district attorney to contact the police's internal affairs division.

The fourth-year linebacker said he wanted to make the incident public after the department closed his complaint following an internal investigation.

"I think there have been traffic stops and interactions between white and black that have caused some of the most disgusting, civil unrest in this country", Nehls said, adding that, "We haven't experienced that in Fort Bend County".
