7:33 am
transported out to flushing for the open and then what happened? >> yeah, it was really shocking. i was standing there just waiting, minding my own business, and i saw someone coming from the street, running directly at me. and as naive as i may be, i thought it was somebody i didn't recognize, a high school friend sore something to mess with me and give me a bear hug, and turned out quickly it that it wasn't. he picked me up and body slammed me and put me on the ground and told me to turn over and shut my mouth and put the cuffs on me and i told him the first words out of my mouth were i'm going to 100% cooperate. i don't want any incident, just out of reaction from what i've seen in the media i don't want any miscommunication. >> you were communicating this with him as you were -- >> those are the first words out of my mouth. i'm going to 100% cooperate. i don't know what happened but i will cooperate with you and he put the cuffs on me. at no time did he let me know he was a police officer. he put the cuffs on me and said stand up and i asked what was going on he said we'll tell you soon. that was it. >> so you didn't resist at all. >> no. >> you were --
7:34 am
>> no, i feel lucky i didn't. because i'm happy that my reaction was i was smiling at the person because i could see how if i put my arms up, or did anything it could be a sign of showing some sort of resistance and instead of having a little bruise on my leg i might have some broken bones or some actual injuries. it department seem like he was slowing down, and he was going to continue that tackle. >> and he was a plain-clothed police officer. >> t-shirt and shorts. >> he never identified himself. >> didn't have a badge in any way showing, not around his neck, not on his belt, anything. the police officers that walked up later i saw a couple badges on belts, but none were really displayed and no one identified themselves. i did didn't get one name out of anyone. >> and when -- how long were you held like that? what were you talking to them and telling them and asking them? >> i was held for about 15 minutes and about five or ten minutes in i admitted i said, look, officer i'm scared. so if i say something wrong i'm
7:35 am
sorry but i want to know what's going on. i think you have the wrong person and i had my credential for the u.s. open in my back pocket. i said, please, check that. you can tell i'm a former player. it's the final eight badge. it means i did well at the u.s. open. i'd like to clear my name and just -- i told him that and he wasn't having it. he said we'll see. we're running your license. we'll figure it out. >> i said you're running my license? the worst you'll find is a speeding ticket. that's the most trouble i've been in. >> you never been in trouble and as we said you were reluctant to come forward. you just wanted to put this behind you. why did you change your mind? >> well, it was -- immediately after it happened i was just -- i didn't want to talk to anyone about it. i was so shaken up i just didn't want to hear anything or talk to anyone and i immediately talked to my wife. she was the first i talked to and she said, you know, what if this happened to me? and immediately i was furious because i thought about what i would be thinking if someone did that to my wife. if someone tackled her in broad daylight paraded her around in a busy crowded sidewalk in new york city with handcuffs with her cuffed behind her back and
7:36 am
taking away her dignity and i just -- i couldn't accept that. and i know that a lot of people have no voice to have any recourse, and i'm lucky enough to have the opportunity to be sitting here with you, to be able to tell this story and let people know this happens too often and most times it's not to someone like me, but someone that has no way -- >> no resources to get their story out like this and you really believe this was a case of excessive force. you're not making about racial profiling. >> no. >> you just feel that it was a use of excessive force. >> yeah, and i probably wouldn't even be so clear, be so indignant about it if it wasn't so obvious, it was so blatant. i was standing there doing nothing, not running, not resisting, in fact, smiling. if the video ever does come to the media, you can see that i'm smiling. and just minutes earlier a reporter happened to be walking by and recognized me and asked a few questions. the police officer could have
7:37 am
easily asked and said can i see your license. >> have the police reached out to you since? have you talked to any of them? have they tried to reach you? they say they've been trying to contact you. >> no, i haven't heard anything but i mean i'd be surprised if they were making that concerted of an effort since i've been contacted by a lot of media sources who have been able to find my number. and i haven't heard anything from the police. >> what do you want from them? >> i'd like an apology. an explanation for how they conducted themselves because i think we all need to be held accountable for our actions, and police as well. they're out there doing a very difficult job and i seen said that during the 15 minutes, i know you're doing a tough job and i respect that, i appreciate everything you do to keep us safe but i think you have the wrong person here and they didn't want to hear it. didn't want to listen to that and i do think most cops are doing a great job of keeping us safe but when you police with reckless abandon you need to be held accountable and i think i'm hopefully going to let people know that some of them need to be held accountable and these that are doing police work the
