Who is Caron Nazario?
Lt. Caron Nazario is a US Army Officer who graduated from Virginia State University and was commissioned out of their ROTC program. Lt. Caron Nazario who was detained at gunpoint and sprayed with pepper spray after a traffic obstruction in Virginia, is said to have filed a lawsuit against two alleged racially profiled police officers.
Lt. Caron Nazario, a member of the US Army Medical Corps, was wearing his military clothes when he was arrested in Windsor on December 5 for driving his new Chevy Tahoe without a license plate.
The incident quickly escalated when Nazario, nicknamed the Black and the Latino, refused to comply and said he was afraid to get out of the vehicle.

A second lieutenant in the U.S. Army is suing two Virginia police officers over a traffic stop last December during which the officers drew their guns, pointed them at him, and used a slang term to suggest he was facing execution before pepper-spraying him and knocking him to the ground.
In a lawsuit filed earlier this month, Nazario says his constitutional rights were violated during the traffic stop in the town of Windsor. The two sides in the case dispute what happened after a second police officer joined the first one in the stop. At the time, Nazario was coming from his duty station and going home, attorney Jonathan Arthur told The Associated Press on Friday.
Asked about Nazario‘s condition after the incident, Arthur said, “He’s definitely not doing too well.”
Windsor Police Officer Daniel Crocker radioed he was attempting to stop a vehicle with no rear license plate and tinted windows. He said the driver was “eluding police” and he considered it a “high-risk traffic stop,” according to a report he submitted afterward and which was included in the court filing.
