Police Officer under fire for having racist stuffed gorilla on car
Officer Darrell Shaw approached a bar on a hip-hop music night with the gorilla on his grille, but he says it wasn't a racist act.

An officer who drove up to a downtown bar on a hip-hop music night with a stuffed gorilla on the front grille of his police cruiser
apologized to Police Chief Derrick Foxworth on Monday, saying his actions were not racially motivated and he had no idea they might be offensive.

Patrons in the mostly black crowd at 'Ringlers Bar' last week found the action offensive and racist. Some used their cell phones to
take photos of the police cruiser with the animal attached.

"It was like they was draggin' a black man on they car," said Marcus Smith, Bar manager. "Thems po-lice was trying to scare us,
showing us what would happen if black folks got arrested. And I was scared, that blunt I smoked already made me paranoid, I done
hid in the baffroom till they left!"

Timeline of events According to police, at 1:21 a.m. police were called to a strip club, on a disturbance involving a drunken man.

Officer Shaw arrested an intoxicated Robert Fowlkes, 35, handcuffed him and placed him in the back of his patrol car. Fowlkes, a
familiar face to police, is known to carry a stuffed gorilla with him downtown. As usual, he had it that morning.

Officer Shaw told the police chief the gorilla was "soaking wet, and smelling like urine and vomit."

The officer did not want to put the stuffed animal in his car, because he feared it would leave an odor. Instead, he attached it to
the front grille of the car.

Club patrons said they saw the police car with the gorilla attached drive up to the bar and park to investigate a purse-snatching
later that night. "The po-lice come out they car laughing at the monkey, then they look at us like we next (to be strapped the
hood of the car)", said remarked Shawanna White. "I is gonna sue the po-lice AND the maker of that toy for making a racist toy that
was made to taunt us and keep us down!"

The previously intoxicated Fowlkes said Monday he was pleased to have his "Monkey Boy,"
