Wake County school board member Keith Sutton isn't getting the apology he wanted from Raleigh Police Chief Harry Dolan or from the officer who nearly arrested him at the chaotic July 20 board meeting.
Sutton said he was only trying to calm things down when he went into the crowd of people who were being arrested for disrupting the meeting to protest the end of Wake's diversity policy. An officer pulled Sutton's arms behind his back before letting him go after school staff interceded.
Sutton had publicly called for the apology while Dolan had said board members shouldn't place themselves between demonstrators and police. Both men met face-to-face July 30.
