Police in Royal Oak, Michigan stopped and questioned a 20-year-old black man for allegedly “looking suspiciously” at a white women Tuesday evening, reports the Detroit MetroTimes.
Devin Myers was walking to Inn Season Cafe on Fourth Street to grab a bite when officers approached him and began questioning him.
Myers calmly apologized to the four officers “for wasting your guys’ time,” according to a live Facebook video recorded by Kimiko Adolph.
“I’m not going to leave a brother out here,” Adolph said.
Myers explained to officers he did nothing wrong.
“This young man is stopped because a Caucasian lady said that he looked at her suspiciously and he has been pulled over walking going to eat by two police officers for suspicion of being black,” Adolph explains in the video.
“It’s not that big of a deal,” the officer said to Adolph.
Adolph responded, “It’s a big deal when this happens consistently.”
Inn Season Cafe paid for Myers’ meal.
