Police: Woman falsely accused trooper of making racial slurs in Cayuga County traffic stop

A Rochester woman has been arrested for falsely accusing a New York State trooper of making racial slurs during a traffic stop in Cayuga County, state police said Wednesday.

On Jan. 29, 2017, state police stopped 36-year-old Tiffany Robinson-Clarke on Route 38 in the town of Moravia.

According to a press release, Robinson-Clarke was on the phone with her husband — an inmate at the Cayuga Correctional Facility — throughout the entire traffic stop. Thus, police said the entire encounter was recorded.

After the traffic stop, Robinson-Clarke contacted state police in Auburn and accused the trooper of making racial slurs toward her after issuing a ticket.
