AJC.COM - Two white Atlanta police officers have been cleared of racial profiling allegations against filmmaker Tyler Perry.
The finding comes after a four-month internal investigation of the officers' actions during a traffic stop earlier this year outside Perry's southwest Atlanta studio.
Perry did not file a formal complaint on the incident, but the Atlanta Police Department used statements he made on his Facebook page as a basis to launch the investigation.
The officers stopped Perry, who was alone in his
white Porsche Panamera, on Feb. 24 after Perry made an illegal left turn
as he left his studio en route to the airport, according to the
investigative report obtained by the AJC. The officers questioned Perry
for about six minutes before letting him go without issuing a ticket,
the report said. Perry said he made the illegal turn to make sure he
wasn't being followed, a tactic he was told to use by his security team. click here to read more
