This just goes to show how viral the internet can be. This arrest was a serious case of profiling by some officers who questioned how a youg black man could legitimately afford this type of car. The answer is - by working HARD at his legitimate professional job. For everyone's information, the charges in this case were dropped by the judge for lack of evidence. But that news is not reported here and you all have jumped on the bandwagon, ruining a good person's reputation.

Well, since we can't access the original story and the headline stated he claimed his car was stolen when it wasn't.....how's that work?

Let's see...I believe when someone is falsely accused the person did no wrong. You actually believe that this young man had not dealt the hand which is given to him.Reading the full article or not the story does not make any sense...period. Insufficient evidence does not liberate someone from their crimes.

Not a good idea to create false police reports, especially if insurance claims are involved. Then again, most criminals are not notoriously smart haha If you want to report a stolen car online, check out http://www.stolenlostfound.net/
