Man claims racial discrimination after police encounter while trying to make return at Hobby Lobby

Man claims racial discrimination after police encounter while trying to make return at Hobby Lobby

During the ordeal, Spurlock said Trussville police were called to the store because he says one of the managers thought he looked like someone that’s been returning stolen goods to the store.

"On May, 15, 2018 our dispatch office received a call from Hobby Lobby concerning someone in their store that they believed had written bad checks and made fraudulent returns to their store.

When our officer arrived he spoke to an employee of Hobby Lobby and they explained the situation to him.

Hobby Lobby did have a picture of the person that was writing bad checks and making fraudulent returns and it looked somewhat like the person in the store but it did not appear to be him.

The officer gave the person's Id back to him and asked him if he had a driver's license since he was driving and the person stated that he had a Georgia Drivers License but did not have it on his person.
