Ayala followed the officers' instruction, but expressed confusion over what caused her to be stopped.

The other officer was seen near the passenger side of Ayala's car while the other officer talked with Ayala.

She has also been the victim of racial attacks, having received a noose in the mail among other things, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

A spokesman for the Orlando Police Department told the Times that, "In regards to the video, which was released by the Orlando Police Department last month, the officers stated the tag did not come back as registered to any vehicle. As you can see in the video, the window tint was dark, and officers would not have been able to tell who, or how many people, were in the vehicle."

Ayala has not brought a case against the department, and for now the department won't be taking any further action.
