“I felt like I was singled out everybody was riding past the situation seeing thought I was doing something wrong,” Mckean told FOX 2’s Randy Wimbley.

Mckean said he was leaving a friend’s house and passed a nearby business on Martin Luther King Blvd twice on Thanksgiving Day. That was his explanation for the reported ‘pacing’ call.
