PLANO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – After almost four hours of debate Tuesday night, the Plano City Council was split on a mask mandate for employees and customers visiting businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

Therefore it did not pass.

Instead, the council agreed to a “strong recommendation” that businesses have their own mask mandates.

Mayor Harry LaRosiliere voted against it saying that wasn’t strong enough.

The city received more than 1,000 comments on the issue, including 520 emails on the topic.

The city said 86% of those emails were in favor of the mask requirement.

Some council members who opposed it said they are wearing masks in public, but didn’t want to force it on people or create a burden for businesses.

Richfield police release body cam footage in mistaken identity arrest; Black driver says he feared for life

A Black man says he was left shaken up and fearing for his life after police arrested him in Richfield in a case of mistaken identity.

Darrius Strong posted an emotional video on Facebook after his arrest in Bloomington on Friday. Strong said four white officers pulled him over, and he had thoughts of George Floyd, the black man who died in a Minneapolis police encounter, after he was placed in the back of a police car.

“I could have been dead today,” Strong said in his video.

Strong said all of the officers approached him with “their guns out,” but Richfield police, one of the agencies involved in the traffic enforcement detail, said only one officer momentarily drew her gun, but she pointed at the ground and never at Strong.

Once the officer determined Strong was compliant, she holstered her gun, police said. The officer discovered a different person had used Strong’s name, resulting in an arrest warrant in his name, police said. Police said Strong was compliant and was released.

Police said the officers “regret the stress Mr. Strong felt.”

Strong said in his video that his arrest “could have ended in a whole different route.”

“Racial profiling is a thing,” he said. Related Articles
