An African-American film producer in Beverly Hills for an Emmy pre-party was handcuffed and detained for around six hours on Friday night as police believed he fit the description of a suspect in a nearby bank robbery.
Charles Belk said he left a restaurant alone to refill a parking meter when he was suddenly surrounded by six police cars “handcuffed very tightly, fully searched for weapons, and placed back on the curb,” he wrote on his Facebook page with an accompanying photo of him sitting on the curb as two police officers stand close by.
EVEN IF YOU IN A BENZ YOU STILL A NIGGA IN A COUPE
^^^I saw Charles Belk on Joy Reid show this afternoon on MSNBC and he said that he was going out to his car to put more money in the meter because he wanted to obey the law. But as he was going to his car his cell beeped and he was walking as he was replying to the text. Belk said that normally he would’ve been running out to his car and the meter but because of the cell ring he was walking and he believes that because he was not running as he was being spotted by the police that’s the reason he is alive today.
Wow, just wow! Unbelievable..but yet believable. SMH…
