MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Director Mike Rallings is responding to claims that his officers targeted a community activist in a recent traffic stop.
Keedran Franklin was arrested Friday in the Sherwood neighborhood.
Memphis police said they stopped him because his car's window tint was too dark, and then found marijuana and hallucinogenic drugs.
However, fellow activists allege police targeted Franklin.
"I know officers did not target Keedren Franklin," Rallings said. "They enforced the law. They observed a violation and did a lawful traffic stop. The driver, Keedran Franklin, also had a suspended license. I don't think we can plant that on him."
Rallings said they're reviewing body camera video.
