Washington Redskins Safety Su'a Cravens made many headlines this year when he decided to walk away from football.
Now he is back in the headlines, but for something that is unrelated to football.
Redskins safety Su’a Cravens accused a Virginia police officer of racial profiling after being stopped for speeding https://t.co/qT2A510Bgb— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) December 19, 2017
Cravens reason for the accusation
And shoutout to the Police Officer that racially profiled me, followed me to the store, yanked and slammed me against my car, cuffed me and threw me in the back of his squad car for supposedly doing 39 in a 35 last week. Gotta love this world man— Suzy (@Sua_Cravens) December 18, 2017
According to the 22-year-old, the police had accused him of smelling like marijuana and proceeded to check his car before the officer wrote Cravens three tickets.
He accused me of smelling like marijuana from his vehicle as I was getting out my car and slammed me against my car. Cuffed me and put me in the squad car. Then search my car inside and out for 30 mins, couldn’t find anything, so he wrote me 3 traffic tickets. https://t.co/gg7ZsQabt6— Suzy (@Sua_Cravens) December 18, 2017
Cravens not only posted all of this on Twitter, but also shared videos of himself after being released from the police car. According to one of Cravens' tweets, the police officer made a threat towards Cravens' little brother and called in four other squad cars.
This is not a good look at all, and may result in more political protests this weekend and for the remainder of the NFL season.
