The video reveals Mott getting upset with the police officer for the cease, accusing an officer of racism.

“It went out while I’m driving. That’s not, that’s not a crime,” stated Mott.

“I need your registration and your proof of insurance, please,” stated the officer.

“That’s not a crime, ma’am. What you’re doing is you’re harassing a black woman,” stated Mott.

“Do you have insurance on your vehicle?” stated the officer.

“Yes, I have insurance. Are you asking me that because I’m Black?” stated Mott.

“No, ma’am,” stated the officer.
