Iowa City Police Release Body Cam of Ekakitie Encounter
I knew it wouldn't be long before the Iowa City Police Department released the full video of their encounter with Iowa Hawkeye Football DL Faith Ekakitie. I read a lot of articles about how Ekakitie "FEARED FOR HIS LIFE," but considering the circumstances, I think both Ekakitie and the officers handled the situation as well as they could.
For those of you not clued into the story, Ekakitie was mistakenly stopped by police while playing Pokémon Go. He was held at gunpoint because he fit the description of a suspect that had just robbed a bank 10 minutes prior.
