"Initially, as soon as they approached us, they just said we had to leave", Robinson told Good Morning America Thursday.
"I'm not going into it at this point in time but we will be pushing that out at a later date". "And that's exactly what we want to see out of this and that's true change.Put action into place".
A witness recorded the ensuing arrest, and the video has gone viral on social media over the past week.
Ross defended his officers against that assertion.

The two men did not resist arrest, but instead appeared confused and unsure of what to think or do. "You can and should expect more from us".
