Former tennis star James Blake has even more to say about his violent arrest. He told NBC the apology from the NYPD was a "nice gesture," but more needs to be done.
"It makes me wonder why he was out in the street and given this position to begin with," James Blake told NBC.
The NYPD recently released surveillance video of Blake being slammed to the ground. The department says the arresting officer misidentified Blake as a criminal.
