Cops in Glendale claim a dashboard cam proves a police officer did not “profile” the son of Hollywood “IT” Girl Taraji P. Henson. Now Taraji is apologizing. Watch it inside and find out about Sundy Carter’s police report against her former “BBW LA” co-stars.

In an earlier post, we told you about “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson transferring her son Marcel to Howard University after he was racially profiled during two separate incidents (one with the USC campus police, a second by Glendale, CA cops). Now, the Glendale Police Dept. has released dashboard cam they hope will exonerate them in the public eye. They claim Marcel was not targeted and the officer was very fair to him. Taraji had complained that Marcel’s car was illegally searched and he was cited for marijuana possession, but not ticketed for the original infraction.

On the clip above, the officer pulls over Marcel for allegedly failing to yield at a crosswalk. Once stopped, the officer asks Marcel if he has anything illegal in the car and Marcel cops to the weed. The officer thanks him for being honest.

We’ve watched the tape, and yes, the officer was as close as most Black men will get to “Officer Friendly.” We can’t speak for Taraji, but we’re sure the USC event is what has her transferring Marcel to Howard. You’ll recall that he was stopped simply because he had his hand in his pockets. If anything, this is a good case for body cams and dash board cams for all officers.

UPDATE (3.27.2015): Now that the tape has been released and Taraji has seen it, she’s issued an apology via Instagram

In other news…

Former “BBW LA” star Sundy Carter has filed a police report over a fight she had with Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo in July 2013.

Why are we speaking about this now? Well…Sundy filed the police report Wednesday night, almost 2 years after the incident but the statute of limitations is 1 year.

Sundy thinks she may have legal standing because 6 months ago she found out she has permanent eye damage. She says her vision is blurred and she now has to wear glasses. While legal experts (via TMZ) don’t believe this will hold up in court, Sundy can still file a civil lawsuit against the ladies (because the statute of limitations for the civil case is 2 years).

Here’s what we think happened….reality stars rarely sue one another for tv fights. But, now that Sundy won’t be on BBW LA next season, she’s decided to sue the ladies for yesterday’s news. Girl bye….
