Authorities have released the audio of a 911 call a white woman made reporting that a black man was looking at her suspiciously near a Michigan cafe.
In the 911 audio, the women can be heard telling a Royal Oaks police dispatcher she had just left the Inn Season Cafe on Fourth Street and was planning to drive to Rochester in a rental car when she noticed a black driver”Just staring at me in my vehicle.”
“He’s an African-American male, and I don’t know what his deal is, but it’s making me not feel very comfortable at all,” the woman said in the call.
It led to Royal Oaks Police officers questioning 20-year-old Devin Myers for more than one hour last Tuesday in the Detroit suburb.
Inn Season manager Erin Frey told the Detroit Free Press he was trying to find a parking spot at the time. He only noticed the women becuase it looked like she was coming out of her parking spot.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told NBC 4 Detroit the Civil Rights Division of her office is investigating to make sure Myers’ rights were not violated.
The Royal Oak Police Department has apologized to Myers in a statement.
