An American is claiming that he was targeted and assaulted by San Pedro police because he is black! 33 year old New York resident Tracy Blount came to our studios today and told us that he traveled to Belize for his friend’s wedding last week. Buton Wednesday night, when he and his friends were celebrating at Daddy Rock’s Night Club on San Pedro, he claims that police escorted him outside and assaulted him. Here is his version.
We spoke with the San Pedro Station Sergeant and he told us that Blount was escorted out of the night club because he was seen going in and out of the bathroom with known drug peddlers on the island; not because of his race. Blount also told us that he is missing one of his cell phones but the Station Sergeant told us that Blount authorized officers to hand over all his belongings to one of his friends. No drugs were found on Blount so he was released.Channel 7
