Police said Weems was driving a stolen car on Oct. 20, 2017, when officers tried to stop him at 30th Street and Bougainvillea in Tampa. Officers said Weems pulled into a parking spot at a dollar store and got out of the car.

According to the lawsuit, another officer drew his gun and pointed it at Weems as he got out of the car. When the officer told Weems to turn off the car, investigators say Weems put it into reverse or neutral, which caused the car to roll back into the officer's patrol car.

Weems then got back into the car and drove away, being pursued by three officers, including Kremler, in separate police cruisers.

The lawsuit says Weems got out of the car at a traffic light at 30th Street and Busch Boulevard, running into a nearby parking lot carrying "a green bag or piece of clothing."
