DJ Qualls says he's growing a "police brutality beard" because every time he shaves his face he cuts a scar he got in Vancouver.
Last night, the American actor told the story of his alleged beating in September at the hands of a Vancouver police officer on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
"I guess this cop saw me and decided that I look dangerous and a threat to public safety....I know, it was awful," Qualls told the talk-show host.
Ferguson asked Qualls if the VPD apologized.
"We're working that out," he replied.
Qualls, who starred in Road Trip and Hustle & Flow, said an apology would be enough for him. He said he's not suing the police because he doesn't want to take taxpayers' money.
