A district attorney's office in Tennessee says the actions of a trooper who allegedly groped a woman during a traffic stop and pulled her over again three hours later were "inconsistent with his training," CBS Knoxville affiliate WVLT-TV reports. "Our review of this matter revealed that Trooper Lloyd's actions were inconsistent with his training and Tennessee Department of Safety General Orders," said a release late last week from the Office of the Eighth Judicial District Attorney General's office.
It also said, however, it does not believe the trooper's actions during the encounter with the woman "form the basis for any criminal charge against him."
The woman, Patricia Wilson, says the trooper, Isaiah Lloyd, pulled her over for not wearing a seat belt in August last year, according to a lawsuit filed several weeks ago, in late January. Wilson said Lloyd asked her to get out of her car and lift up her camisole and shirt, then felt around her waistline, WVLT-TV reports. Wilson said Lloyd put his hands in her underwear and touched her buttock and pubic area.
Lloyd ticketed Wilson for not wearing a seat belt -- a pending violation the DA's office later dismissed -- and she continued on to work, according to the lawsuit. Three hours later, Lloyd pulled her over again, as Wilson's children -- 3 and 8 years old -- were in the vehicle.
"We have to stop meeting like this," Lloyd allegedly said. He also said he would not give her a ticket for having tinted windows and asked her where she was going, according to the lawsuit, WVLT-TV reports. Wilson said she was going to her the home of her children's father then back to her own house.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that dashcam video shows the two traffic stops.
They just can’t quite figure out why people don’t like them so much.
The peasants just don’t seem to be with the droit du seigneur program...
Does he think he's Joe Biden ?
For a seat belt violation? “Here’s your ticket, buckle up and have a nice day”. Why did he have to have her get out of her car? Did she have priors? Warrants of some sort? A pat down for?????
just because there is coke on the table and a straw in his hand and white powder on his nose doesn’t mean he was taking drugs...
Gimme a frikkin break, the pervert should have been locked up already.
Sooooo...she got pulled over in August and waited until January to complain and file a lawsuit? Wonder if she and Trooper Lloyd had a “relationship” that recently ended.
Traffic stop video.
She tried to go through police channels, then the said he did nothing wrong.
First he “patted her down” then gave her a field sobriety test.
The video shows both stops. Five minutes in I saw everything I needed to see when a seatbelt stop morphed into a sobriety test marathon and grope session. The woman was clearly not inebriated in any way just from the conversation and her normal movement. She never should have had to leave her vehicle.
Funny the cop didn’t notice the window tint problem on the first stop and had to wait near the woman’s house for three hours to pull her over again. Stalk much?
Can you recall a single instance when the police investigated themselves and found they were in the wrong?
For a seat belt violation?
The somali cop here in Minneapolis got away with murdering an unarmed white woman from Australia.
Feeling someone up is nothing, he will be cleared and she might want to stay out of range.
Yeah! watch the video...
I’ve seen multiple officers that I have worked with suspended, fired and arrested following IAB investigations. Most good cops want the bad cops gone.
Has he already been acquitted?
