Mass. police heard calling Gates uncooperative

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - A Cambridge, Mass., police sergeant who responded to a 911 call about a possible break-in at the home of black Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. can be heard calling Gates uncooperative during a radio communication with a police dispatcher.

Sgt. James Crowley said he was with a man who claims to live in the house and with identification showing he is Gates. Crowley says the man is not cooperating and tells the dispatcher to "keep the cars coming."

Another voice can be heard in the background of the transmissions, but it is unintelligible and unclear if it is Gates.

Cambridge police released a recording of the police transmissions Monday after more than a week of controversy over Gates' July 16 arrest on a disorderly conduct charge.
