James Blake Arrest Video Released by NYPD - Watch Now

Video footage has been released showing tennis player James Blake being tackled to the ground and arrested by a plainclothes officer in New York City.

The 35-year-old tennis star was misidentified as a suspect in a credit card fraud case, who is still on the loose.

The video shows James standing outside his hotel and a man rushing up to him and throwing him to the ground.

Police commissioner Bill Bratton has released an apology statement, though James told TMZ he does not accept the apology.

    Notice the guy who came out the revolving door and going right back in when he saw what was going on….trying to fly under the radar?

    The NYPD are as disgusting as the LAPD. I am so embarrassed for this guy.

  • dalovelee

    and this man is a well known athlete..if this guy was unknown the police would have swept this story under the carpet or he would have been just another black man that everybody assumed was in the wrong.

    It was mistaken identity but he really just grabbed him and put him on the ground he wasn’t injured. Nine times out of time those guys run so he did what he had to do. It sucks but that’s life.
