Carl R. Loser, who ran as a Libertarian in the crucial 10th District Senate race in November, is in trouble with the law after a traffic stop.

Loser, 25, has been charged with assaulting a Henrico County police officer after allegedly rolling up his car window on an officer's hand as he was being given a traffic ticket on New Year's Day, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

According to the newspaper, the incident occurred at 9:47 p.m. at the intersection of Havenwood and Lauderdale drives in western Henrico.

Loser says he’s innocent and wants body camera evidence from police.

He ran in a four-way race for the critically important 10th state Senate district, in which Republican Glen Sturtevant narrowly defeated Democrat Dan Gecker. The result kept the Republicans in control of the state Senate. Loser came in last.

It hasn’t been the first time that Loser, a community college paralegal student, has drawn critical attention. A month before the election, he was accused of threatening his campaign manager’s estranged ex-wife, claiming she could lose her home and child custody rights if she pursued support claims.
