An Emirati businessman, identified by US media as Ahmad Ali, was arrested by police in the city of Avon, Ohio, United States after he was mistaken as a Daesh member.

The incident happened on Wednesday at the Fairfield Inn and Suites on Colorado Avenue in Avon and was captured by a bodycam, which was later reported by News Channel 5.

The video shows that the police handcuffs Ali following a phone call by a hotel clerk that Ali was allegedly pledging allegiance to Daesh.
