Donisha Prendergast, granddaughter of reggae legend Bob Marley, plans to sue a southern California police department saying she and a group of friends were racially profiled and swarmed by police while leaving an Airbnb.

The Rialto Police Department was served Monday with a notification of pending legal action on behalf of Prendergast and two other people involved in the encounter, Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan and Kelly Fyffe-Marshall, according to a press release.

Prendergast was in California for a music festival last week, she wrote on Instagram.

Moments after she and three friends left their Airbnb, a neighbor called the police to report a possible burglary because the neighbor saw people she didn’t recognize loading suitcases into a car, according to a Facebook post by Fyffe-Marshall.

In a statement, police confirmed responding to a report of a possible in-progress burglary.

On Instagram, Prendergast said she then “got surrounded by the police for being black in a white neighbourhood” and felt “sad and irritated.”

RCS SIDEBAR:   Anyone who follows me knows that I am HORRIBLE at selfies.  Here’s yet another selfie fail!.  Biggup Donisha.  Stay strong “until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance that the color of his eyes.”
