Why Did Cops

Detain Dupri?

5/9/2007 2:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ obtained video of a traffic stop yesterday in West Hollywood. It shows Jermaine Dupri in the back of an L.A. County Sheriff's car.

Dupri's Lamborghini was near the squad car, doors wide open. After a while, deputies let Dupri leave. It is unclear if Dupri, Janet Jackson's fiance, was cited for anything. It is also unclear why deputies detained him, and why they let him drive away.

We contacted the Sheriff's Dept. West Hollywood substation but the watch commander had no info on the stop.

Dupri's peeps did not return our calls.

Get a life!!    

Cops do not have the right to pull you over when ever they want to. But if for whatever reason they do then the best thing to do is what they ask and not be a smart @ss. Lashawn, in order to state your rights you have to know them first. And everytime a black man is pulled over it's not to be consider racist. And this is comming from a black man. I'm not in love but they have a job to do and just imagine the world without them you wouldn't want to come out your house. I say that to say keep your nasty comments to yourself regarding those who protects and serve your city.

When 1/4 of blacks are in some way connected to the prison systems, it should come as no suprise that the cops will stop without cause; they have a one in four chance that the driver is guilty of something!

Here we go again.


How about the race card is never played until white people bring it up, DAMN, learn and live a little. You all never come with anything new, you always play the race card first, so don't get angry when blacks say something back to you, grow up.


Also about the slaves and diamonds comment.

Not only blacks wear diamonds smartness....Zales has a sale this week. I'm sure many will be sporting bling for mothers day and they won't just be black.


Some ignorant people boy.

Rent me, it was Trey who started to comments.

Look at Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. They play the race card when it comes to anything. Yet they are the most hypocritical men in the world. They make me sick.

I know the facts. ...

He was initially pulled over for having no license plate and a loud exhaust. He was detained b/c he had no CA license (only Georgia) and they were trying to determine if he was in fact a California resident.

Nothing too exciting...
