Transcript for Virginia police officers sued after altercation with Army 2nd lieutenant
Next tonight, newly obtained video of a police confrontation between officers and an army second lieutenant. Police pepper spraying the lieutenant who was in uniform during a traffic stop. He's now suing the officers for everything that happened once he was pulled over. Here's ABC's Alex Presha. Reporter: Tonight, two police officers being sued by an army second lieutenant, claiming his rights for violated during a traffic stop caught on multiple cameras. Put your hands out the window! Reporter: Police body camera rolling as an officer attempts to stop in early December for a rear missing plate on the SUV. Caron Nazario behind the wheel, pulling over at a gas station 100 seconds later and starting his cell phone camera. He picked a well lit place to stop, his lawyer says, for safety. He does have a plate, a temp plate taped to the window of his brand new car. But as seen in the video, the situation goes south quickly as a second officer arrives on the scene. Put your hands out the window and turn the vehicle off! Reporter: More than 20 times they order him out of the car. Get out of the car now. Get out of the car. Now! I'm honestly afraid to get out. You should be. Get out. You feel like your client had reasonable right to fear for his life. I think so. Officer Gutierrez backs that up. Reporter: One of the officers pepper sprays Nazario and forcibly removes him from the SUV. Get out of the car! Reporter: Nazario was released with no charges. Windsor police haven't responded to request for comment. Nazario's attorney says his client is suing so these incidences stop happening. Alex Presha, thank you.
