MCKINNEY —"Hands up.  You on the phone get your hands up!"

"For what?"

"Because I told you to, get your hands up!"

"What did I do?"

Cell phone video shows a McKinney, Texas officer drawing his gun right before Andrew Guilford and Prezell Oliver were put in handcuffs.

“I was standing up here when I was getting it on tape,” Prezell Oliver told NewsFix.  “And the officers were coming from down there.”

Cops say they were called out to a domestic disturbance, and that the suspect was 'threatening to shoot the 911 caller.'

“I was recording beforehand, because she had already called the police, and I wanted to videotape when the police got here just in case something like that were to happen and I just wanted to be on the safe side,” Oliver added.

However, these two were unarmed.

“We’re not just going to brush it under the rug,” Andrew Guilford said.  “It’s just not going to happen.”

He said they have not received an explanation nor an apology.

“We want it to stop,” Oliver said. “We don’t want it to continue.”

“It seems like an ongoing issue,” Guilford added.

Due to the nature of the call, McKinney PD said they responded appropriately.  But whether McKinney PD was in the right or in the wrong, the incident that occurred at a McKinney pool party is still fresh in the minds of many.
