Man Claims he Was Pulled Over, Profiled for Being White

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- An Annapolis man is suing the city, accusing police officers of unlawfully stopping and searching his vehicle several times because he was a white man in a neighborhood with predominantly African-American and Latino residents.
    
Daniel Hodges filed the lawsuit Saturday in U.S. District Court, naming Mayor Mike Pantelides, Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop and officers involved in the traffic stops.
    
Hodges' lawyer Nevin Young says he believes the officers presumed his client to be in the minority neighborhoods to buy illegal drugs.
    
According to the lawsuit, Hodges said he was stopped three times this year and questioned during two of those stops by police regarding drug activity.
    
Hodges says he isn't involved with illegal drugs. He's asking for $150,000 in damages.
    
City and police officials declined to comment on the litigation.
