ROYAL OAK, Mich. – Royal Oak police apologized Thursday after a viral video of an officer approaching a black man for allegedly looking at a white woman suspiciously caused outrage.
"He's an African American male, and I don't know what his deal is, but it's making me not feel very comfortable," the woman said in a 911 call.
Police stopped Devin Myers, 20, as he was walking into Inn Season Cafe.
"She's calling us saying you're staring at her, so that's why I'm out here," an officer said to Myers.
The officer and Myers went back and forth, and Myers asked for a supervisor.
The Police Department issued an apology for what happened, saying: "This is not the practice of the Royal Oak Police Department and it is not acceptable. The supervisor has been disciplined and every Royal Oak police supervisor has received additional training in procedural justice."
