ATLANTA — Two White Atlanta police officers have been cleared of racial profiling allegations against filmmaker Tyler Perry.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the decision comes following a four-month investigation by the police department after Perry felt he was profiled during a traffic stop outside his Atlanta studio earlier this year.

Perry didn’t file a formal complaint on the incident, but an internal investigation was launched after he posted comments about the incident on his Facebook page.

A report says Perry was stopped Feb. 24 after he made an illegal left turn in his white Porsche Panamera as he left his studio. The report says the officers questioned Perry for six minutes before letting him go without issuing a ticket.
