PC shockingly tells DJ in Bentley that it’s a ‘fact’ b***k men commit more crime

DMO Deejay was filming a promotional video when he was pulled over by police officer in the capital.

The DJ, who plays weekly at DSTRKT nightclub in Piccadilly, posted a video of his shocking confrontation with the cop.

In the GoPro footage, which was heavily edited, the DJ can be seen talking to the police officer.

The cop said: “This isn’t racist, it’s a fact. Predominantly, the criminal profile of people who do it are black people.

So, naturally, if you see a car full of black lads, maybe dressed in gangsta-style clothing or whatever, when they’re driving down there, they’re getting stopped.”

In the footage you do not see the conversation leading up to the controversial comments or the aftermath.

The 27-year-old DJ, who is originally from Birmingham, said he didn’t want to play the “race card” but was frustrated as he is often stopped by police.

The DJ also admitted that he had also been pulled over by police earlier in the night.

He told Mirror.co.uk: “I’ve not said anything about it being racist and I don’t want to play the race card but it’s something that needs to stop.

“It disrupts your life being stopped like this, a few hours before this footage I was stopped for 40 minutes and it made me late for a meeting which I was fuming about.

“When people see you being pulled over it’s easy for them to assume you’ve done something wrong. I don’t want to be seen like that and it’s frustrating.”

Footage was uploaded following the incident which took place in Leicester Square on January 4.

Scotland Yard said it could understand why the footage had caused offence.

A spokesperson said: “The MPS is aware of the footage circulating on a social media, and it has been reviewed by the directorate of professional standards.

“A senior officer will make contact with the man who was stopped to apologise, and ask if he wishes to make a complaint.

“We can understand why based on what has been circulated in the footage why it has caused frustration.

“The officers will be spoken to about the explanation that they provided and to ensure we fully understand the circumstances of what happened.”
