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:
Redskins WR Paul Richardson alleged an officer asked if he was "in a gang" and if he was a drug dealer during the course of a traffic stop in VA this afternoon. @prichiejr has since deleted these two tweets. pic.twitter.com/28UQFfgIQg

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.
