Tyler Perry’s claim earlier in the week that he was a victim of some not-so-civil treatment by Atlanta police has led to an internal department investigation.
The comedian and producer spoke out, in light of the Trayvon Martin case, about racial profiling he allegedly suffered from two officers during a traffic stop.
Perry claimed he was questioned unreasonably because he is black, and spared further trouble only after a black officer showed up and recognized Perry.
Perry says racial profiling should be a federal offense. While that may never happen, Atlanta police are looking into his claims of misconduct in this case.
The Good Deeds director described his version of events in detail on his Facebook page on Sunday, writing that he was driving to the airport at the time.
Perry was pulled over for turning left from a right lane, a maneuver he attempted to ensure he wasn’t being followed, as he was without his security detail.
According to Perry, who described the ordeal on Facebook, the officer who approached his window asked, “Why do you think someone would follow you?”
