The Dayton Daily News requested and obtained the dash-cam video of Miguel Espinosa’s Aug. 26 traffic stop in Yellow Springs.
Espinosa was stopped for not stopping on the white stop bar line on the pavement when he stopped at North Winter Street and Yellow Springs Fairfield Road.
A Yellow Springs man now detained because of his immigration status has led village officials to question their policies and practices in making arrests.
The Aug. 26 arrest and potential deportation of 41-year-old Miguel A. Espinosa has come as a shock to village residents who know him well as a longtime villager and family man who operates the food truck Miguel’s Taco’s.
Village officials are reviewing “protocols, guidelines and policies to find a better solution that meets our legal requirements, ensures public safety and well-being of the community, and is sensitive to the dynamics of vulnerable populations,” according to the statement.
The Dayton Daily News is working to gather more details on this developing story.
