“Mr. Bembury admitted to the pedestrian violation and told the officers he was looking at the GPS on his phone to determine where he was heading. The entire detention lasted about 3 ½ minutes. Mr. Bembury consented to a search, was cleared of any outstanding warrants, and released with a warning. No citation was issued

“The Beverly Hills Police Department is committed to promoting traffic and pedestrian safety and has issued 61citations related to pedestrian violations since January.”

Donatella Versace also posted about the incident on her Instagram account.

“I am appalled this happened to Salehe Bembury today. He has been a consultant at Versace for a long time and the behavior he experienced is totally unacceptable. He was stopped on the street solely for the color of his skin. Stay strong @salehebembury. Sending you love and support x”
