Remember that feel-good story about the JUCO player crossing over uniformed officers? Complex caught up with Samir Hill afterwards, and apparently the cops weren’t as friendly the day after:

What’d the cop say or do to you afterwards?

After the video—actually, two days ago, they were trying to arrest me.

I saw you post a video that appeared to show you and a friend in handcuffs, “all because of basketball.” What happened there?

I think it was because of the video, but they said it was the people I was around. I don’t think it was that though, cause most of the kids I hang around are college kids. I think they just wanted to take me down to the district to show who I was.

Did they arrest you?

They didn’t arrest me for nothing. They were talking about how they thought they saw something. I was just down there [at the police station] for an hour and a half, then they let me go.

They didn’t explain to you why they took you down?

No, they didn’t explain it to me. They just took me in there, handcuffed me to a bench for an hour and a half. They were doing a search on the car. They searched the car for like an hour. They didn’t find nothing, and they let me go. The whole time they were telling me how they weren’t gonna lock me up, that they were targeting my friend.

So your friend was in trouble, and you just happened to be riding in a car with him.

Yeah, basically.

The handcuff video has since been deleted. Plus, Samir is advocating for the cops.

That subtweet tho…

In any case, I’ll just go ahead and let a cop win their game of pick up. Seems to save a whole lot of hassle.
