In news from Ohio, the coroner for Hamilton County has determined that the bottle in the car of Sam DuBose, who was fatally shot by University of Cincinnati officer Ray Tensing, contained air freshener, not alcohol. Tensing, who is white, stopped DuBose, who is African-American, on July 19 for not having a front license plate. Police body cam video showed Tensing asked to see the bottle during the traffic stop, which was labeled “gin” but which DuBose said contained air freshener. Minutes later, Tensing fatally shot DuBose in the head after DuBose objected to removing his seat belt. Tensing has been charged with murder and is currently free on a $1 million bail.
