Ving Rhames Opens Up about being held at Gunpoint By Police

Ving Rhames said that the police pulled gun on him in his own house while investigating a reported burglary attempt. According to him police was disrespectful and rude to him. The gun was right in front of him and he was scared.

The 59-year-old Mission: Impossible – Fallout actor said that one of his neighbors reported that a big black man had broken into his home, the police came and suspected Ving as a burglar.

“This happened this year. I am in my home, it was around 2:15 p.m. in the afternoon,” Ving revealed that in an interview on the Clay Clane Show.

“I have a screen door and then I have a wooden door… I’m in my house, I’m in a pair of basketball shorts only. I have two English bulldog puppies. I hear a noise in my backyard, but I’m thinking the puppies are just running around, and then I get a knock on the front door,” Ving added. “I open the door and there is a red dot pointed at my face from a 9mm. They say put up your hands, literally. I just walked and opened up the door… then they said, ‘Open the front screen door.’ They say do it with one hand so then I have to do it with one hand. My hands are up and they have me outside.”

According to Ving the main officer knew him and then police went to the neighbor’s house, who called the cops, but the neighbor denied and said that he didn’t call the cops.

“My problem is, and I said this to them, what if it was my son and he had a video-game remote or something and you thought it was a gun?” he added.
