VA Cops Reviewing Redskins WR Paul Richardson’s Claim That Cops Asked Him if He Was in a Gang, a Drug Dealer & How Much His Car Cost, Before Asking His Name

Washington WR Paul Richardson was pulled over yesterday in Virginia. Following the exchange, Richardson tweeted about how these VA Cops treated him like a criminal before they even asked his name:

Virginia State Police Spokeswoman Corinne Geller says authorities are reviewing the claims in Richardson’s since-deleted Tweets:

While no formal complaint has been filed, the Department is reviewing the matter, to include the trooper’s in-car camera footage of the traffic stop, to determine if the traffic stop was handled in accordance with state police policy.

Richardson just signed a five-year, $40 million contract with Washington over the summer.
