The New York Police Department on Friday released surveillance footage showing the retired tennis star James Blake being dragged to the sidewalk by a plainclothes officer during an arrest in Midtown Manhattan this week.

An officer, looking for suspects in an investigation into a credit card fraud ring, rushed at Mr. Blake on Wednesday after a courier outside the hotel identified him as having used false credit card information to make purchases.

In the video, the officer, James Frascatore, is seen running at Mr. Blake, who is casually leaning against a beam outside the Grand Hyatt Hotel. He was on his way to a corporate appearance at the United States Open.
