NFL Player Chris Johnson Gets a Visit From Police


It's hard being young, black and rich — especially if you're Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson.

The NFL star got a surprising visit by the police after an anonymous tip suggested that there was drug activity taking place in his condo. Orlando, Fla., police say that neighbors witnessed high-end cars entering and exiting Johnson's complex Tuesday afternoon before they decided to perform a "knock-and-talk." When officers arrived, Johnson was described as being "cooperative" and "cordial," and also in the middle of an MTV taping. Once cops realized that nothing was going on, they left the scene. 

Johnson took to Twitter soon after to comment about the incident, saying, "Y did the police just walk in my condo saying they think it's drug activity because it's a lot of traffic but it was the MTV camera crew." He added, "Hard being young, black and rich."
