Police Officers Pull Over Black Fla. State Attorney, Can't Explain Why

The Daily Mail shared a video from body cam footage released by the Orlando Police Department that shows two cops pulling over Florida's only black state attorney, Aramis Ayala, in June. For instance, in April, she received a noose in the mail.

Officer: "We ran the tag, I've never seen it before with a Florida tag, it's never come back to anything before, so that's the reason for the stop". In the video, two white officers have a tough time explaining to Ayala, who is not only Central Florida's state attorney but arguably the most recognizable state attorney in Florida, why she had been stopped.

Ayala then asks for the officers' names and has them write their names on a piece of paper because they do not have cards on them.

When asked by Ayala why they ran her tags, the officer explained that they run tags all the time to see if vehicles are stolen. "I don't have a tint measure, but that's another reason for the stop".

"Oh we run tags through all the time, whether it's a traffic light and that sort stuff, that's how we figure out if cars are stolen and that sort of thing", he said, as Ayala sits in her auto, clearly annoyed.

Ayala got national attention earlier this year when she refused to pursue the death penalty in Markeith Loyd's case. Ayala is now suing Scott in federal and state courts over the matter.

In regards to the video, which was released by the Orlando Police Department last month, the officers stated the tag did not come back as registered to any vehicle.

The cop replied as he wrote his name down on a notepad: "One second ... actually, this isn't my auto but I can write my name down".

The attorney was handed back her license and drove off.

He then claimed he had also pulled her over because of her "windows are really dark".

Ayala has not brought a case against the department, and for now, the department won't be taking any further action.
