After Redskins safety Su’a Cravens accused Virginia police of racially profiling him and roughing him up during a November 29 traffic stop, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has responded.
The 22-year-old said he was only pulled over and searched because: “I’m black. I’ve got tattoos on my neck. I’m out here in a nice car.” Official records stated it was for going 39 in a 25 and having tinted windows, TMZ reports.
Cravens has threatened to sue the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department, who told TMZ Sports, “This traffic stop was not a case of racial profiling.”
Officials told TMZ Loudoun County is cracking down on speeding near schools. “A deputy’s LIDAR received a reading on a vehicle that was traveling over the posted speed limit of 25 mph in a school zone. The deputy initiated a traffic stop and the driver pulled over into a shopping center.”
The Redskins player is due in court next month.
