Shayne Holland was asked to leave the pool in his own apartment complex Friday. When he showed proof of residency, an off-duty cop snatched his keys. Video shows both the cop and the property manager ordering him out. He is black; they are white.
"She didn't introduce herself, she didn't say hello," said Holland. "She says, 'do you live here?' I'm like, 'yes, I live here, I wouldn't be here if I didn't live here.'"
Holland said the woman pressed him further, asking him to tell her exactly where he lived.
"I'm like, 'I live over there, but if you're asking me for my address, I mean, I don't feel comfortable giving you my entire address without knowing who you are."
Holland said he showed the woman his key fob, which he used to get into the pool and the woman grabbed it out of his hand.
After a while, Holland said his property manager came out, recognized him, and still asked him to leave.
