Oh come on, he was near where the next Republican Convention is going to be held, he wasn't allowed in the hotel as it was full, he gave over his ID.

How often do you give your ID when the hotel is full? Never.

I'm thinking he started spouting off (as they do) and the female receptionist got frightened.

Another bollocks story.

Out of curiosity I watched part of the 'chest cam' from the copper.
After being released from the cuffs, he said he was a policeman in the UAE!

The 7days comments are great; Pakistanis and Pinoys asking for Americans to be banned for this incident ....

Even if that were true, which it isn't, did you actually watch the 6 min footage?

Even if this guy was shouting his head off or even punching the receptionist in the face, it would not have resulted in this if he was a good ol' boy from Texas.

The footage is of the arrest, not what happened before the arrest.

And how often does the UAE apologise for a mistaken arrest? Don't bother googling it, it has never and will never happen.

I have to question why anyone would want to dress in the National Clothes outside of UAE.

You are asking for trouble...Especially in Team USA who have ZERO tolerance for anyone who isn't white and blonde.

apparently the UAE ambassador is asking for a formal apology to the dude. I think the receptionist should, at the very least, be given the boot.

The officials of the city have apologised for the incident as well. How many apologies have been given to women who report being raped and then jailed?

N.
you are comparing an apple with an apple mate
both forces in both countries are heavy handed as they have to be because both situations are almost the same, a small population has to keep a larger population in check
and the 3000 lost in a day were because jet fuel can melt reinforced steel beams...and cause another building to come down without a reason....and punch a hole in another building with a plane without any debris or bodies whatsoever.....yes....it was definitely muslims who did all that!
and ofcoruse the hundreds of thousands of lives lost in retaliatory invasions wouldnt be any reason for 'jitteriness'
