NFL Star Chris Johnson -- Why Are The Cops Here?

5/4/2011 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson got a knock on his door from the cops yesterday ... and according to the NFL star, it all went down because he's, "Young, black and rich."

TMZ has confirmed ... the Orlando Police Department got an anonymous "non-specific" tip about  high-end cars entering and exiting Johnson's condo complex yesterday afternoon.

We're told cops performed a "knock and talk" at Johnson's Florida residence to follow up on the tip. When cops arrived to Johnson's home, he was "cooperative" and "cordial" -- and in the middle of a shoot for a TV project.

Law enforcement tells us they checked out the scene -- and determined there was absolutely nothing illegal about the situation ... and left without incident.

Moments after cops walked out the door, Johnson tweeted, "Y did the police just walk in my condo saying they think it's drug activity because it's alot of traffic but it was the MTV camera crew."

He added, "Hard being young, black and rich."

People are supposed to call the police when they see suspicious activity no matter what color the resident is in a condo community....I live in a condo and the board tells us to call all the time if something seems out of the ordinary, get over yourself you punk ass.

Police have to investigate when someone makes a call...even if its stupid. They found that it was a BS call and went on their way. It would have been another thing if they started searching his property and all that (may have done it if there wasn't cameras all around). But they person who made the call is a "hater"...plain and simple.
