Ariana Amaya (18) said she and her younger sister were in their car with their mother in Mt. Oliver, North Carolina when a state trooper pulled them over, "under the assumption that [my mother] did not have her seatbelt on." According to Amaya, her mother did not have her driver's license, and after she provided the officer with her name and date of birth, he "ripped" her out of the car.
Her younger sister recorded the trooper on her phone and uploaded it to TikTok, which you can see below.
Amaya said she got out of the car to call her stepdad. She said the trooper pulled his"pulled "his weapon out on me." Amaya didn't get back in the car.
She said the trooper failed to read her mother her Miranda rights. "He also did not have his body cam on and refused to bring a female officer to search her." She said the officer accused her of being an "illegal immigrant."
Amaya said her mother is still being detained and has launched a crowdfunding effort to help get her out.
