When two Newark police officers came upon Juan Restrepo around 9:45 on a sunny morning in June 2020, the 73-year-old was sitting in the front seat of a rental car with a busted hood and deployed airbags.

He was disheveled and struggled to communicate or follow officers orders to shut off the car, according to police body camera video. And when he exited the vehicle, he couldnt stand straight and stumbled as he tried to step a few feet from the car.
