Rugby Ace Ugo Monye Accuses London Police of Racial Profiling

English rugby star Ugo Monye has accused the Metropolitan London Police of racial profiling (now there’s a first). The British Lions star was pulled over (shock horror) in his Range Rover by officers who he claimed “presumed his car was stolen (I take it they had the plates confirmed it was stolen then pulled him over? Yeah right).” Police were forced to apologize, reports the Daily Mail.

After the incident Monye wrote on the Twitter, “Just been pulled over by police in Richmond… They ‘presumed the car was stolen’. I’m furious. Wasting my time.”

The winger, who has 13 England caps, made an official complaint to the police, who were quick to apologize over how the incident was handled. … Following a response from a senior officer Monye said he was satisfied with what was said. He posted: “Was frustrated earlier with the police… but they rang back, apologised, all has been dealt with. Fair play to them.” (Just doing ther job)…
