Thankfully, things didn't escalate. "My son is twenty-nine years old, and he just bought his first really good car. He paid for it, he’s working…we came back from our vacation in Italy, so excited…The police stopped him, pulled him out of his car and asked him, “Is it stolen?” Pulled him into the back of their car and said, “Do you have drugs?” And, this could have gone any kind of way, but he knows how to behave now," she said. Allen added that despite her son's run-in with police, she isn't going to condemn them all.

"At the same time, if you have a home invasion, we’re gonna call the police to help us," she said.
