Authorities in Brownstown, Michigan are investigating a local police officer after multiple witnesses heard him tell an Arab-American family to go back where they came from, reports WXYZ.

The altercation occurred on the Fourth of July and began after the officer had words with a father and his child who were making their way into a local park.

As the two walked away, witnesses heard the cop– who later identified himself as Officer Gillespie — make the racist comment only to be called out by another man who was also entering the park.

The officer tried to play it off by saying he meant go back to Illinois.”

According to WXYZ, the police chief has confirmed there will be a complete investigation of the incident based upon the video.
