A video went viral of a man in Wisconsin who during a traffic stop claimed the police planted drugs on the backseat and they allegedly caught the whole thing on their cell. Today the Wisconsin police are saying that not only was there no drug planting and they got a body cam to prove it.
Here’s what we know officers conducted a traffic stop. Police say the rear passengers weren’t wearing seat belts so they were removed from the car after the cops decided to conduct a search. That’s when the planting vs. not planting came into play.
According to Wisconsin police:
“Since four officers were present on scene, the body worn camera footage and squad camera footage totals in excess of 6 hours of video,” “We are still in the process of reviewing the videos. All videos, in their entirety, will be released in the very near future.”
No arrests were made during the traffic stop and the driver was issued a citation for speeding.
