Chris Johnson: Cops came to my condo because I’m young, black and rich


Titans running back Chris Johnson had a visit from the police on Tuesday, and he’s not happy about it.

Johnson wrote on Twitter that he had a television production crew at his home, and that the police, noticing the activity, decided to investigate whether there was drug dealing going on. And Johnson suggests that he thinks racial profiling was behind the decision of the police to stop by.

“Y did the police just walk in my condo saying they think it’s drug activity because it’s alot of traffic but it was the MTV camera crew,” Johnson tweeted. “Hard being young, black, and rich.”

TMZ reports that the Orlando Police Department got an anonymous tip about high-end cars entering and exiting Johnson’s condo complex, but there was absolutely nothing illegal going on.

Johnson was described by police as “cooperative” and “cordial,” although he apparently didn’t think to offer them anything to eat until later: Johnson later re-tweeted a tweet from a fan who told him, “u shoulda invited them in and gave them some donuts.”
