I Remember this one from a while back. The man who was arrested claimed that the police (not his department) where profiling to catch drug runners in the Miami area. He fought the charges in court and won because the arresting officer had been told by the judge previously that making a stop for covered county on a plate was not justified by itself. The arrested man then sued that police department, but I could not find the results on line...
an Orlando jury convicted Maj. Aaron Campbell, Jr. of only two misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest without violence, but acquitted him of the more serious battery charges.
Orange County should have fought this more. It sets a bad precedent for people feeling that they can resist arrest and get away with it, along with some LEOs believing that they are above the laws normally obeyed by everyone else.
Maybe they did use racial profiling, but that's no excuse to get violent over a minor traffic incident. Campbell vastly overreacted and broke the law himself. He should have taken the ticket, then filed the lawsuit and he would have been entirely in the right. As it is, he ended up making a total fool of himself.
