GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. A spokesman for a Detroit suburb says a police officer has been sidelined after taking responsibility for harassing a black man while videotaping him.
Grosse Pointe Park spokesman Greg Bowens tells the Detroit Free Press for a story Friday that the unnamed officer has been removed from patrol duty. Bowens says an investigation is nearly complete.
The videos were posted to the website of a news outlet called the Motor City Muckraker. Bowens says authorities are seeking additional videos from the site in an effort to determine "if there is a pattern" of mistreatment.
