The Georgia Department of Public Safety has launched an investigation into a traffic stop involving NBA guard Anthony Morrow.

Morrow told the Charlotte Observer that he felt he was being racially profiled when he was pulled over and that he was “humiliated” by the two troopers who conducted a search of his vehicle.

He said that he was driving back from picking up his 8-year-old daughter when he was pulled over. He said that the officer asked for his license and registration as well as his insurance card and then immediately asked if he had any “drugs, large sums of money or guns” in his car.

The Georgia department issued a press release on Tuesday saying that “a formal investigation has been initiated to determine the facts surrounding the traffic stop, and the results of the investigation will be made public at its conclusion.”
