Video of Kansas traffic stop goes viral

Posted: Updated:
SALINE COUNTY, KS -

A video of a traffic stop in Kansas has gone viral, with nearly seven million views since last week.

The couple in the video says they didn't commit a crime and don't think they should have been pulled over. Johnathan Ayers is the passenger in the video, his wife Tia Jones is the driver. She has bonded out of jail. Tia Jones told reporters she started recording on her phone when she was pulled over by a Saline County deputy on September 2nd.

"I understand you aren't a traveler but I'm talking to a female driver.. she's a traveler too, she doesn't need any identification."

The sheriff said the deputy pulled Jones over for not staying in her lane while driving from Colorado on I-70. The sheriff said Jones pulled over, but the couple refused to show their I.D's.

"Again like I said we know our rights." Ayers says he thinks their race was a factor in the traffic stop. "Seeing that he came to the passenger side , seeing that we had an out of state license tag...um I think it's because of my color. I don't know."

The sheriff says that's not the case and the sheriff's office did it's own investigation and found the deputy did nothing wrong. Ayers and Jones say they were pulled over without committing a crime. "I feel like they are trying to build a case right now and they don't have a case.. they don't have anything they can go off of."

Towards the end of the video you can see an officer holding a less lethal weapon to get the couple to comply and when they didn't the deputy broke the window and pulled the couple out. "In every case it's always easier to cooperate with the officer, they are just trying to do their job."
