A woman in South Carolina said she feared for her life during a traffic stop in the Virginia countryside.
Brunswick County, VA – A South Carolina woman twisted a traffic citation into allegations of racism on April 27, after a sheriff’s deputy gave him a speeding ticket (videos below).
“You know, we should not be afraid to drive and be stopped by the police,” Dawn Hilton-Williams said through her tears in a live video on Facebook that lasted more than 11 minutes. “My natural instinct, for all those who know me, knows that I do not like being told what to do.”
The incident occurred in a rural area along Highway 59, when a deputy of the Brunswick County Sheriff arrested Hilton-Williams, 50, for a violation of the speed zone, reported the WTVR .
Unseen bodycam footage from the sheriff’s office showed the deputy as he approached the woman’s vehicle, identified herself and asked for the license and information from the Hilton-Williams vehicle.
He explained that he stopped her for traveling 70 miles per hour in an area of 55 miles an hour, at which time Hilton-Williams said she had not seen any signs indicating the limits. speed in the region.
Cordial conversation continued briefly, before the MP returned to his patrol car to direct Hilton-Williams information.
When he returned to his vehicle, the Deputy Minister told him that he had sent her a notice of traffic and began explaining to her the options available to pay for her ticket or appearing in court.
“It’s a convocation to traffic?” Hilton-Williams interrupted. “Where’s the sign that says its 55 miles per hour?”
“Many places,” replied the MP. “You are more than welcome to go back and watch them, take pictures of them or whatever you want to do.”
“So you did not warn me?” Asked Hilton-Williams. “Did you give me a real ticket?”
“Yeah, no warning today, ma’am,” said the deputy, resuming his options.
“Wow,” Hilton Williams said in frustration.
“You have the opportunity to prepay this,” continued the MP. “I’m going to give you a phone number, plus a website that contains information about our courthouse. If you contact our courts, they will tell you what the fine is, answer any of your questions and if you decide to pay it in advance, you do not have to go to court. ”
Hilton-Williams again interrupted, and said she would not pay the bill, and that she planned to hire a lawyer.
Undaunted, the Deputy Commissioner concluded his instructions and asked Hilton-Williams to sign the quote as an assurance that she would either pay the ticket online or appear at the scheduled time of the trial.
“I will not sign this ticket,” she replied. “I do not need to sign it, but I appreciate it.”
The Deputy Minister went on to explain that her approval was not an admission of guilt.
“This is only a promise that I will make sure that it is taken care of by the court or the advance payment,” he said.
The MP then presented Hilton-Williams with a third option to handle the case.
