My first response to this story was "Unbelievable!" but unfortunately in America it's all too real, too frequent, and very believable.
Tshyrad Oates says he has been a paying member of LA Fitness in Secaucus, NJ for at least eight years. But when he went to his gym earlier this week, the gym accused him of entering without paying. He showed them his membership card – twice, once to the manager and once to the expressionless clerk at the desk – and both times the computer showed that he was indeed a member of the gym. But that wasn't good enough. Police were called in.
By the end of the video above (or the fourth video below), Oates is wondering why the gym is now terminating his membership. He says he doesn't know what he did. Even one of the police officers admits he has no idea why Oates is getting kicked out.
The four videos below were taken by Oates' friend, who was with him at the gym. The gym manager told them they had to stop shooting the video, and even tried to get the police to make them stop with the camera, but the police admitted that it wasn't illegal to shoot a video.
