Body cam footage of a DUI stop has cleared a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper who was accused of sexual assault by the driver of the car:
Shaun King smeared a TX DPS Trooper with false allegations.
The "victim" was proven to be a liar after the footage was released. Body cams are having unintended consequences.https://t.co/fTkTO1yNGP

Activist Shaun King amplified the woman’s BOGUS claims in now-deleted posts to Facebook and Twitter where he said she was “kidnapped and raped”:
.@ShaunKing spread the claim that this woman was raped & held hostage by a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper.

According to Raw Story, King’s original Facebook post making the false accusations was share over 50,000 times.
The woman’s lawyer — who is also a friend of Shaun King’s — has now publicly apologized:
So, where’s King’s apology? We’re waiting:
Hey @ShaunKing, aka Talcum X, when are you going to apologize for falsely accusing a Texas state trooper of raping and kidnapping a black woman? Entire story was a lie. I hereby offer free legal service to that trooper if he wants to bankrupt you.
