ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - State Attorney Aramis Ayala was pulled over on June 19th in Parramore after leaving FAMU Law School, where she teaches in the evening.
In the video, the officer states that she was pulled over because the tag would not "come back to anything" and the tint of her windows.
Ayala released a public statement addressing this traffic stop, which can be read below:
I was pulled over by Orlando Police department on June 19th in Parramore after leaving FAMU Law School, where I taught in the evening.
After public records request, the video was released by the Orlando Police Department.
Since its release, the video has had more than 2 million views and produced a flood of misinformation. Including the filing of a lawsuit which is not true.
To be clear, I violated no laws. The license plate, while confidential was and remains properly registered. The tint was in no way a violation of Florida law.
Although the traffic stop appears to be consistent with Florida law. My goal is to have a constructive and mutually respectful relationship between law enforcement and the community.
I look forward to sitting down to have an open dialogue with the Chief of Orlando Police Department regarding how this incident impacts that goal.
