On Monday, a plainclothes NYPD officer tackled and handcuffed a black man who allegedly looked like a credit card fraud suspect, but was actually tennis star James Blake (who is not a suspect). On Friday, TMZ obtained video of the takedown, which reportedly left Blake cut and bruised.
Blake has not been accused of any crime. In fact, the NYPD has since apologized to him for throwing him to the ground and leaving him in cuffs for 10 to 15 minutes. The officer who attacked him has been placed on desk duty.
