The NYPD just released video of a NYPD plainclothed cop ferociously grabbing former tennis star James Blake, throwing him to the ground and cuffing him.
The video shows Blake's description was not an undersell. You see him standing just outside the door of a Mid-City hotel when the cop swoops in, shoving him to the ground.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has apologized, saying Blake looks very similar to a guy who was a suspect in a credit card fraud case. Turns out that guy was innocent and the real suspect is still on the loose.
We posted a video earlier today where it appeared Blake rejected Commissioner Bratton's apology -- but that was NOT James in the video. The photo agency that shot the video and licensed it, informed us it was Blake.
