Officers Cleared in Tyler Perry Profiling Case
The officers involved in the Tyler Perry profiling case that occurred in February have been cleared.
According to CNN, documents released Tuesday (Sept. 11) state that the two white Atlanta police officials who pulled over and interrogated actor/ mogul Tyler Perry have been exonerated of racial profiling by an internal investigation.
On the day of the incident, Perry had left his Atlanta studio in a white Porsche Panamera. Perry then explained in a detailed Facebook post that he made an illegal left turn to make sure he wasn’t being followed. The officers then questioned Perry for about six minutes before letting him go. He said that one of the officers continuously badgered him, describing the incident as “hostile” and that he felt unsafe.
After a four-month investigation, an internal affairs officer reported, “I would submit the evidence shows the actions of both officers with the regard to the traffic stop of Mr. Perry were justified, lawful and proper.”
A rep for Perry said he was out of the country and could not be reached for comment.
