    “Treme” star Robert Brown (pictured), who reportedly filed a discrimination lawsuit last year against mega retailer Macy’s and the New York City Police Department accusing them of racially profiling him while he was trying to purchase a watch for his mom, has settled the “shop and frisk” case, according to the New York Daily News.  

    Brown has been very vocal about the fact that New York City’s finest, the “men in blue,” allegedly handcuffed and paraded him through the chain’s Herald Square flagship store on June 8 of last year, after they and store personnel accused him of using a fake credit card to buy his mom a $1,300 watch for her college graduation.

    Reportedly, the “Finding Forrester” star accused both the retailer and police department of false imprisonment, negligent training and civil rights violations and was seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
