During the video, which was posted on Snapchat with headline ‘what black girl magic looks like’, Steele is heard saying ‘bye Felicia’ as the woman walks away with her back to the camera on a night when temperatures in Detroit plunged to -18F.
Detroit police confirm that Officer Gary Steele is restricted from working in the field after he posted the Snapchat. DPD says it is investigating after an cpl Steele posted a racist and demeaning Snapchat video of a woman he had pulled over for a traffic stop.
On Tuesday evening, Steele and another unidentified officer pulled over Ariel Moore for driving with expired license tabs. The officers ordered Moore to walk to her destination because of the expired tags.
