Austin, TX – Austin Chief of Police Art Acevedo says newly released dash camera video of how an officer conducted a traffic stop with a black woman will not be tolerated by the department, and he is making a public apology to the victim.

Austin police say the traffic stop happened on June 15, 2015. In the video, an Austin Police Department officer is seen conducting a traffic stop on East Riverside Drive near Burton Drive. The officer’s lights and siren were on when he pulled over 26-year-old Breaion King. As the cars come to a stop in a parking lot, King steps out of her car as Officer Bryan Richter approaches her. As he asks her to get back into the car, the two continue speaking. King is seating in the driver’s seat when the officer asks King to put her feet inside the car and from there the situation escalates.
