James Blake doesn’t look like he’s stealing anyone’s identity or do anything else wrong when plainclothes NYPD officers rushed him.

The NYPD released the video of the former pro tennis star being slammed and handcuffed over mistaken identity:


New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton said he apologized Thursday to former tennis star James Blake, whom police mistakenly tackled and handcuffed in a sting operation that went awry outside a Manhattan hotel.

Blake, 35, spent five or 10 minutes with his hands cuffed behind his back before police realized they had the wrong guy and let him go.
