Cherie Johnson was on Punky Brewster and Family Matters back in the day. Now, along with her actor boyfriend she teaches acting classes while still hustling to find roles. While on vacation with her boyfriend in Myrtle Beach, SC, the pair were pulled over for speeding. They took the ticket and moved on. According to Johnson the pair stopped on the side of the road a few miles up the road because there was a cotton field and Ms. Johnson wanted a photo.
The policeman pulled behind their car once again and Ms. Johnson told the police they were taking a photo. The policeman then asked if they had drugs in the car and pulled out his gun on the pair. He told Cherie that a warrant had been issued for her arrest which was a lie. When they asked if this was because they were black the officer cuffed the pair and said they looked like drug dealers and probably had a dead body in the trunk and asked to search it. They let him and he found nothing and eventually let them go.
The Sheriff says he is investigating the situation and told CNN that the Deputy is also being investigated. You know nothing will happen and that it happens everyday but just doesn't get reported on CNN.
