On Wednesday, former tennis star James Blake was mistakenly detained by police, and he says the officer who mistook him for a suspect used "blatant" excessive force!

The 35-year-old appeared on Good Morning America to open up about the traumatic incident in which he was "body-slammed" and handcuffed by a plainclothes NYPD officer while he was standing outside his hotel!

Blake said he was detained for about 15 minutes by at least four plainclothes officers. The half African American athlete tried to explain to the cops that they had the wrong guy, but none of the officers listened to him!

On Wednesday former tennis player James Blake was waiting outside the Grand Hyatt hotel in NYC for his car to bring him to the US Open, when he was wrongfully cuffed by cops.

The African American athlete says a white officer allegedly slammed him to the ground and slapped handcuffs on his wrists, all because he was mistakenly identified. He says:

"It was definitely scary and definitely crazy."

We bet. Getting violently thrown on the sidewalk — while doing nothing other than wait for your ride to pick you up — sounds pretty scary. Reports say he even bruised his leg and cut his elbow in the commotion!

At first he wasn't entirely sure what was happening, because the cop in question was wearing a t-shirt and shorts and didn't have his badge visible:

"Maybe I'm naïve, but I just assumed it was someone I went to high school with or something who was running at me to give me a big hug, so I smiled at the guy."

While he was on the ground, four other officers — all of them white — came over and surrounded him. But the tennis star says he's unsure if racial profiling was in play here:

Listen To This: On Solid Ground

It's been a hot second years since we've heard from Aqualung!

The British singer/songwriter/producer is back AND he's not only has a new sound (think James Blake), but….

He's also enlisted the help of Perezcious fave Lianne LaHavas on his new single, Eggshells.

The result????

Choir/orchestral alternative piano pop!

It's all sorts of left-of-center and so good!

Check it out above!
