Portland police officer Todd Tackett, who the city's Citizen Review Committee found last night was disparaging to an African American man, was promoted this afternoon to sergeant.

Last night's ruling was the result of a complaint filed by 62-year-old Floyd McCorvey last summer that Tackett disrespected and racially profiled him when he falsely accused him of being a pimp and a crackhead and referred to his low-income housing before citing him for jaywalking.

The Portland Police Bureau's initial investigation into the incident found that allegations that Tackett was disrespectful to McCorvey were "unproven."
