Boston Celtics rookie guard Dee Brown says he is cancelling plans to buy a home in this wealthy suburb after he was held at gunpoint by Wellesley police officers who thought he was a bank robbery suspect.
Brown, a Celtics first-round draft pick, told WCVB-TV in Boston that several police officers, their guns drawn, ordered him out of his car Friday afternoon and forced him to lie on the ground.Wellesley Police Sgt. Bob Meaney apologized for the incident Friday night, saying a nearby bank had been recently robbed and bank officials had mistaken Brown for the suspect.
"We're getting accused of being racists," he said. "We're getting accused of ruining everything for the Celtics."
