Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 10.33.56 AMIn an interview with Uptown magazine, Empire actress Taraji P. Henson claimed that her son was racially profiled by police in a “bogus” stop. The Glendale, Calif., PD released video of the stop, which shows her son running through a lighted crosswalk, admitting to possession of marijuana and Ritalin without prescriptions and being treated by officers with great courtesy.

Glendale, Calif., has the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in the state.

Update:
Taraji Henson apologized on her Instagram account to Glendale PD.  “I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother’s job is not easy and neither is a police officer’s.  Sometimes as humans we over react without gathering all of the facts.  As a mother in this case I over reacted and for that I apologize.  Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son.”
