NEW YORK - Video released by the NYPD shows a former tennis star being wrestled to the ground by an officer who mistook him for a suspect.
James Blake was standing outside the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan when he was suddenly grabbed, thrown to the ground and handcuffed by Officer James Frascatore.
Officials say they were looking for a credit card fraud suspect who looked like Blake.
Blake says the officer never identified himself and he was held for several minutes before police realized they had the wrong guy.
The incident has prompted apologies from both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.
Frascatore is on desk duty while an internal investigation is underway.
