Memphis police officer appears in controversial music video

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Memphis police officer is in hot water after reportedly being investigated for her involvement in a local rapper's music video.


The song may be catchy to some, but this music video found on YouTube by the Memphis artist P. London caught the attention of the Memphis Police Department because one of their own officers, may be in the background of the video.

The music video posted on YouTube is called “What's up (expletive)” by P. London. The video chronicles a group of women who kidnap another group of women.

MPD confirmed they have received this video and Officer Paris Glass, a  seven year veteran on the force, has been relieved of her duty pending an administrative investigation.

The video chronicles a group of women kidnapping another group of people and features lines that talk about gang affiliation.

Some say that officers of the law should be held to a higher standard, while others look at the rap video as mere entertainment.

WMC Action News 5 spoke with P. London, though she declined to talk on camera. She says Glass was not originally supposed to be in the video and due to editing she was mistakenly seen in the video.

As MPD investigates this incident, like the graphic ending to the video, one officer's career with the force may end up dead.
