Montague said she moved only to change shirts. The one she was wearing featured the Hot 107.9 logo and Montague said she didn’t want to embarrass her employer if police ended up taking a mugshot.

Her civil rights lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court on Friday, accuses Gardner of violating Atlanta Police Department regulations requiring officers to wear city-issued body cameras that are fully operational. The lawsuit states that Gardner turned off the camera to hide his encounter with Montague.
