The “Black Panther” director was in Atlanta, attempting to make a withdrawal from his account with Bank of America. The teller received an alert on his account, according to the police report obtained by CNN, because the amount was more than $10,000. The teller notified her superior that she thought Coogler was trying to rob the bank and 911 was called.
“I’m grateful that Ryan Coogler is still with us. I’m praying for him. I just don’t think so many understand or are even trying to understand the trauma he was subjected to,” wrote Bernice A. King, daughter of Martin Luther King, on Facebook.
