A former top-ranked tennis pro and Fairfield native took the stand at the disciplinary hearing of an NYPD officer who took him down during a violent arrest.
James Blake testified Wednesday that the officer never identified himself as NYPD and never apologized after he realized his mistake.
The officer took the stand right after Blake and testified that he actually did both.
The officer tackled Blake outside a Manhattan hotel in 2015 after mistakenly thinking Blake was a suspect police were looking for.
