ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Ian Adams, 33, said he took the GoPro video of his encounter with officers from the Orlando Police Department. He said since Monday night, he’s cried several times because of the incident.
“I am going to have a nervous breakdown. I don’t know when. But I am going to have one,” Adams said. “No one can tell me anything to make me feel okay, at this point because you pointed a gun at me.”
Adams said he’s hesitant to leave his house on his bicycle.
“If I want to come out of the house at 2 o’clock in the morning and take a ride, I have to double think it. I have to question myself. Should I do it?” Adams said. Orlando Police said their officers were searching for two armed robbery suspects when they stopped the two men. OPD said the men matched the description of the suspects. A witness then came to the scene and said Adams and his friend were not the suspects.
Adams posted the video on Tik-Tok, where it has millions of views.
“I just put a minute of it up there so people could see and it just took off from there,” Adams said. “With this, something needs to happen because we could have lost our lives.”
Adams said he has an attorney and is exploring his options.
