CARY, N.C. — Police in North Carolina say no town officer was responsible for calling a mixed-race woman “half breed” during a traffic stop.
Cary Police Chief Tony Godwin said in a release Friday that after speaking to the motorist and reviewing Computer Aided Dispatch narratives, video, and Automated Vehicle Locator records, police concluded the alleged Thursday incident was not conducted by a Cary officer. Godwin told The News & Observer he didn’t know who was responsible, or if the incident actually happened.
Godwin says the motorist told police she was stopped by an unnamed officer wearing a dark uniform and driving an unmarked car with blue lights.
The motorist’s mother, Marie Charette, had published a Facebook post about the incident. She told the Raleigh newspaper she thinks someone was impersonating an officer.
