RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) –CBS 6 has recently received multiple inquiries from the public about the status of an internal investigation stemming from a Church Hill traffic stop that went viral over a month ago.
The witnesses who shot cell phone video in Church Hill on March 2 claimed the driver of a vehicle that almost hit them is the daughter of a local police officer, and that she was drunk.
They said that her father appeared to be picking her up from the scene, and that the responding officer allowed her to leave without even a sobriety test. You can see some of this happening in the video.
In response to the social media firestorm, Richmond Police launched an internal investigation, and asked the public to come forward with any information about what they saw that night.
When CBS 6 asked Friday if the internal investigation was over, we received a response stating simply: “We’ll not have anything more to say about the investigation.”
CBS 6 responded to let Richmond Police know that viewers specifically asked about the outcome of the internal investigation, but no response was made.
If you remember the story that CBS 6 did six days after the event, we tracked down the man who wears a yellow sweatshirt in the video. Richmond Police have confirmed tht man in the yellow sweatshirt is not a Richmond police officer.
We went to the resident of the driver of the car, as well as the home of the man seen in yellow. The man who answered the door–seen in yellow in the video–did not want to talk. He slammed the door in our face.
Records indicate this man is not currently an officer. His father, based on online records, appears to have been a Richmond Police officer.
Business records indicate he is a contractor. The truck that witnesses say he drove at the scene in was parked outside.
