"Yeah, you should be", one of the cops tells him.
So Nazario, who is Black and Latino, slowed down, put his blinker on, and - about a mile down the road - pulled over at a well-lit BP gas station, according to a federal lawsuit he filed earlier this month.
Windsor Police Officer Daniel Crocker signalled Nazario's auto to pull over and radioed in that he was attempting to pull over a vehicle with no license plate and tinted windows.
Multiple videos - from Nazario's cell phone and the body cameras worn by Crocker and Gutierrez - captured the interaction from several angles. Nazario has sued Gutierrez and Crocker, claiming violations of his constitutional rights under the Fourth and First Amendments. Gutierrez acknowledged that Nazario's decision to drive to a lighted area happens to him "a lot, and 80% of the time, it's a minority", Arthur said, quoting the officer. It also led to "substantial property damage to Lt. Nazario's vehicle and choked Lt. Nazario's dog, who was sitting in the rear of Lt. Nazario's vehicle, secured in a crate", according to the suit.

"These cameras captured footage of behavior consistent with a disgusting nationwide trend of law enforcement officers, who, believing they can operate with complete impunity, engage in unprofessional, discourteous, racially biased, risky and sometimes deadly abuses of authority", the lawsuit says.
"What's going on is you're fixin' to ride the lightning, son", which is slang for the electric chair, and execution.
He then gets out of the vehicle, is placed on the ground, and is detained.
The lawsuit says by the time the two officers reached Nazario's SUV, the license plate was visible in the rear. The officers then struck him, handcuffed and interrogated him. Nazario, when exited his SUV, allegedly gets a knee-strike, which forces him to the ground.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring called the incident unacceptable.
