A white Texas man who says he was harassed by police while walking home with his black granddaughter "lied" about the incident, cops say.
Austin police released surveillance video of the incident in an effort to refute Scott Henson's claim that officers were "rough" and came at him with "Tasers drawn."
"He lied," Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo told the American-Statesman.
One day after the Feb. 10 incident, Henson wrote in his blog that "the officers got out with Tasers drawn demanding I raise my hands and step away from the child. I complied, and they roughly cuffed me, jerking my arms up behind me needlessly. Nine police cars plus the deputy constable all showing up to investigate the heinous crime of 'baby-sitting while white.'"
