Some of the protesters started to taunt him over it.
"I wasn't sure if I would get grabbed by the police officers," Nwadike told CNN. "But also on the protest side -- because there was so much anger and frustration -- I didn't know what to expect."
Nwadike admitted that he wasn't sure how the officers would respond, but several of the officers ended up thanking him for the hugs.
