LA police arrest Black man as they search for white suspect

Video has emerged of Los Angeles  police arresting a Black man who smiled at them as they searched for a white suspect.

A federal magistrate in California ordered that the LAPD body camera footage was released as part of a lawsuit brought by music producer Antone Austin.

Mr Austin, who is also known as Tone Stackz, was arrested by officers in May 2019 despite not being the suspect in a domestic violence call.

Mr Austin and girlfriend Michelle Michlewicz were taken into custody for resisting arrest during the incident, according to the Los Angeles Times.
