The Georgia State Police announced Tuesday that it had initiated a formal investigation into free-agent NBA guard Anthony Morrow’s claims that he was racially profiled during a traffic stop last week.

Morrow took to Instagram over the weekend to describe how he was stopped without cause and two officers “damn near pulled my car apart looking for drugs and money.” Morrow identified the wrong police agency in his social media posts and said he filed a complaint, which neither the original police agency he identified (the Commerce Police Department) nor the Georgia State Police have any record of on file.

Morrow’s 2015 Dodge Challenger was stopped on I-85 in Franklin County at 5:41 p.m. ET last Thursday for having illegal window tint, the Georgia Department of Public Safety said in a news release.
