After being booked into Santa Rita Jail and cited, Hammer was released. According to the Dublin Police Department declined to release his mugshot.

Dublin Police Services Sgt. Herb Walters refused to elaborate on Hammer’s accusations, instead responding to inquiries via email: “We patrol the area of Hacienda Crossings Shopping Center, especially at nighttime hours. That is about all I can say for now.”

This is the second time in recent weeks that a high-profile Black man has been accosted and treated like a criminal because of the color of his skin. As previously reported by NewsOne, actor, director and producer, Forest Whitaker, was recently patted down by an employee at Milano Market in New York and accused of shoplifting. The store has since apologized.
