Minati Roychoudhuri was pulled over on Route 15 in Connecticut a few months ago and cited for an unsafe lane change. Roychoudhuri fought this infraction, saying that she was unfairly and racially profiled by the state trooper as evidenced by him asking her if she spoke English.
Last week though, an internal investigation revealed this woman’s accusations were false, leading to a warrant for her arrest under a false statement charge. Roychoudhuri turned herself in on July 28.
After the traffic stop in May, Roychoudhuri, a professor at Capital Community College, wrote a letter to the commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, accusing the trooper of pulling her over based on her race. The Connecticut State Police Union identified the trooper involved as John Such with Troop H.
