A Georgia doctor was confronted by police after a bank employee who feared he was going to rob the bank called 911 on him.
“They said I was suspicious, I was wearing a hat, and they thought I wanted to rob the bank, and I was like, ‘What?’” Onyegbula said.
The doctor said he was at a United Community Bank attempting to open a new account with his wife. He says a bank employee called 911 to report him while he was on the phone with her.
Bank employee’s 911 call: He went to the front door and he’s been on his phone, and, I, um, called from my phone to tell the employees to lock the front door.
He’s been on his phone out front. And we have no cars in the parking lot. He’s a walker. So, I feel like he’s up to no good.
“I looked at the door and it said close at 4:30 and my time say about 2:15, 2:10. I’m like what happened?” Onyegbula said.
Onyegbula said he left and went to another nearby bank and that’s when they realized police had been called.
The officers left without pressing any charges.
“Until it happens to you, you never know what it
“So you think it was racial profiling?” Johnson asked Onyegbula.
“Yes,” Onyegbula responded.
