Former Duke guard Nolan Smith took to Twitter last night to detail an encounter he had with police down in Durham, N.C. It wasn't a good encounter, either.
The encounter I had with the police tonight...... Guns drawn, yelling, no questions asked... Smh... What's really going on?— Nolan Smith (@NdotSmitty) May 28, 2015
Yes I have 4% Tint... But I rolled the windows down right away... And showed them I was harmless.. They didn't care. Guns were out... Wow— Nolan Smith (@NdotSmitty) May 28, 2015
Soon as they relaxed and asked questions.. They became fans... Chill you not getting a autograph now, you just pulled a gun on me. Smh— Nolan Smith (@NdotSmitty) May 28, 2015
The world we living in.... Yes I'm upset so I'm letting Yall know what happened. Cuz it's real.— Nolan Smith (@NdotSmitty) May 28, 2015
If this is all true (and why would he lie?), it's obviously pretty insane. And it can be added to the (unfortunate) laundry list of problems that the public has with the police right now.
