A Lockport woman claimed racial profiling after being pulled over on Beattie Avenue in Lockport this weekend.

After being clocked down 50 miles an hour in a 35 mile an hour zone, Cheri Simpson asked police if she was pulled over "because of the color of my skin."

After getting the ticket, the 31-year-old Simpson of Elmwood Avenue in Lockport, became argumentative and yelled an expletive according to a police report.

Simpson again said she was singled out only because she was African-American, but then calmed down and left without any more incident.
