It's hard out there for a
pimp guy covered head-to-toe in tattoos.
Travis Barker believes he has been profiled by a Los Angeles police officer for the second time in about one year because of his ink.
He was driving somewhere in El Lay to pick up his daughter on Wednesday when a cop pulled him over.
Turns out his car was missing a front license plate, but Barker says he was treated like a violent gang banger and accused of "having drugs and weapons in the car."
After the Blink-182 drummer allowed his car to be unnecessarily searched, he was simply issued a ticket.
As far as he's concerned, police profiling for any reason just ain't cool and wants it to stop. His infraction was minor and the officer made a bigger deal out of it than he had to.
Not only was it embarrassing, but we imagine he was late to pick up daughter.
