DUI arrest prompts Civil Rights allegations

A Columbia resident is asking a national civil rights organization to get involved in a recent DUI arrest.

According to the National Action Now Civil Rights Organization out of New Orleans, the group is investigating an alleged racial profiling and DUI arrest of Cynthia Walker and her daughter. Rev. Raymond Brown pleaded with the Columbia Board of Alderman Tuesday afternoon to drop the DUI charges. Police Chief Clint McMurry says an official complaint has been filed with the police department and they're investigating the alleged incident. All results will be made public once the investigation concludes. The DUI charges have not been dropped.
