Actors Cherie Johnson (Punky Brewster, Family Matters) and Dennis White (Notorious) were driving to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and stopped to walk in a cotton field and take a photo. When they walked back to their car, a police officer began questioning them about drugs and handcuffed them before letting them go. The couple said they were stopped because they were Black.
