Speaking to TMZ Sports in an interview published Friday, Harrington said "I'm being targeted" by the cops after noting he "just got pulled over again."
Harrington's comments come after TMZ posted video in August of him being stopped outside of his Hollywood-based offices for Viola, a company that sells cannabis.
When TMZ asked the 16-year NBA veteran what happened, he told them he was "driving while black."
Harrington also said the police were "just doing their job."
TMZ noted the Los Angeles Police Department said it takes Harrington's comments "very seriously" and is investigating the situation.
Harrington played for seven teams during his NBA career from 1998-2014. The 39-year-old has also played in the Chinese Basketball Association, the National Basketball League in Australia and won a championship with Trilogy in the BIG3's inaugural season.
