Shreveport Police

Say They're in the Wright

7/17/2008 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The PoPo in Shreveport are blowing off accusations of racism in the arrest of Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright, saying they've found no proof of an alleged racially-fueled rant.

Josh Brolin and Jeff Wright
A spokesman for the Shreveport PD tells TMZ the chief has reviewed all in-car audio and video and found the officers used "professionalism" in the arrests. We're told witnesses at the scene say the arresting officers used extremely foul language -- including the "N" word -- and there's cell phone video of at least a portion of the confrontation.

We're also told other officers heard the offensive tirade, but Shreveport police tell us none have come forward. So far, the Department has not taken any action against the officers.
