Cherie Johnson, who is best known for her roles on TV shows "Punky Brewster" and "Family Matters," encountered a scary situation recently in South Carolina when she was traveling to Myrtle Beach with her boyfriend Dennis White.

The two were pulled over for speeding and then let go. Then a short while later, they had stopped the car to take a picture and another police officer pulled up. White tells "Today's" Maria Shiavocampo that the officer made a move for his gun.

"Cherie, she was like, 'I'm just taking a picture,' and put her hands up, and he grabbed for his gun and said, 'Get in the car,'" says White.

"At that point, I was kind of like, 'Whoa,'" says Johnson. She adds, "I said, 'Sir, are you doing this because we're black?' He kind of just patted the car, gave me a look, and walked to his car. »
