Police in Royal Oak, Mich., issued an apology Thursday after a viral video showed multiple officers stopping a black man when a white woman said he stared at her from across a street.
The scene transpired Tuesday outside a suburban Detroit cafe where police stopped the man, Devin Myers, Fox affiliate WJBK reported. The stop lasted about 19 minutes, according to the Royal Oak Police Department.
The cafe’s manager, Erin Frey, told the Detroit Free Press that the incident began when Myers paused to attempt to pull into a parking spot occupied by the white woman, but he kept driving and found another spot when she did not pull out.
The police said the woman reported on a 911 call that the man circled her car and might have been taking pictures of her and her son.
