In a recent interview with The Clay Cane Show on SiriusXM Urban View, the 59-year-old revealed just this year, a cop pulled a 9-mm gun on him at his own home in Santa Monica, California after his neighbor called and said a "large Black man", was breaking into a home.
Rhames said he was watching ESPN out at his home at around 2.15pm one afternoon earlier this year when he heard a noise in his backyard.
"I open the door, there's a red dot pointed at my face from a nine millimeter", Rhames said. "They say, 'Put up your hands, ' literally".
A neighbour reportedly called 911 telling the operator a "large black man" was breaking into a home. Rhames said to Cane. "My hands are up and they have me outside", Rhames says. When police escorted Rhames to the neighbor's house to clear things up, she denied placing the call.
According to Rhames, he was confronted by three police officers, the captain of police and a police dog. I have a screen door at my Santa Monica place and then I have a wooden door.
The actor questioned what would have occurred if his teenage son had answered the door instead of him, hypothetically holding a video game controller that police could mistake for a weapon.
The Santa Monica Police Department responded to Rhames' claims in a statement to ET.
"This is the God's honest truth". Luckily, one of the officers recognized him because their sons played sports against each other in school.
Thankfully, the captain recognized Ving. "Just like ... Trayvon had a bag of Skittles", says Rhames, referring to Trayvon Martin, the teenager gunned down in Florida by a neighborhood patrol watchman in 2012.
The 911 call came from a neighbour across the street.
A spokesperson for the Santa Monica Police Department confirmed to TooFab that they investigated a burglary involving an "African-American male" at Rhames' home in July 2016, adding that the incident was over "fairly quickly" when they realized there was no break-in. As officers were assessing the residence, they encountered the resident at the front door.
