Tampa Bay police launched bodycam photos to reveal their own version of an incident that became additionally recorded and published to social media by means of a Black female who become pulled over.

In the caption, Wilkerson wrote, “I instructed him severa times I can get out the car and I’m no longer arm yet he nevertheless pointed his gun at me

turned into scared and in fear with my existence and he kept telling me to keep my fingers on the wheels like he changed into gonna shoot and I stored telling him that my hands are up I never once reduced my fingers!”

“The final component I need is a gun pointed to my head,” she added.

Tampa Bay authorities launched the bodycam footage from the officer on Saturday in a information launch to counter what they called a “false narrative” regarding the incident, consistent with Tampa Bay Times.

“There is a post circulating on social media that misrepresents the facts of a recent felony site visitors forestall of an occupied stolen car,” examine the statement.

The bodycam photos suggests the officer pointing his weapon closer to Wilkerson at the same time as he announces the car is suggested stolen. Backup arrives and the officers handcuff Wilkerson, positioned her inside the again seat of a patrol automobile and finally launch her without charges.

Police said the officer become correct in the way he treated a situation involving a stolen automobile.

“Stolen automobiles are pretty frequently used — to do a different sort of crime whether or not you’re going to rob someone, wreck into houses, it typically leads to more crime, different crimes,” stated Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan on Monday, in step with the outlet. “That’s why we take such caution in terms of stolen vehicles.”

“The officer put in his gun in a low prepared wherein it’s not pointed without delay on the man or woman however its already out and may be used and without difficulty raised if they have to guard themselves,” he added.

Wilkerson is a member of the U.S. Army and, in keeping with law enforcement, borrowed the auto from an acquaintance after getting back from a current deployment; she did now not know it become stated stolen.

“The stolen automobile turned into impounded,” police said. “The occupants were not charged.”

“Upon completing the investigation, the motive force and passenger were launched and regarded to apprehend the explanation provided with the aid of the officers,” police stated within the information launch.

Wilkerson, however, spoke with NBC News approximately the incident, saying she nevertheless felt the officer become in the wrong.

“I sense like something needs to appear to the Tampa PD officer who held that gun on me for four minutes. The Tampa PD, they’re bullies, and the way they treat human beings is bad.”
