FILE - This is a Sept. 12, 2015, file photo showing former tennis star James Blake discussing his mistaken arrest by the New York City Police Department during an interview in New York. Nearly five years later, Blake says he never suspected the large man running toward him was a plainclothes New York City policeman. But Blake, who is black, had been mistakenly identified as a suspect in a credit card fraud scheme. Video captured the undercover officer grabbing him by the arm, throwing him to the sidewalk face down and handcuffing him. All of which intensified Blake's reaction to video of George Floyd's death shortly after being detained by Minneapolis police last week. (AP Photo/Bryan R. Smith, File)
