'Put the guns down I'm scared, I'm scared': Shocking moment 90-year-old grandmother tries to shield her black grandson, 21, from cops aiming weapons at him after he drove through a stop sign

Shocking video footage shows the moment a 90-year-old grandmother tries to protect her 21-year-old black grandson from getting arrested by Texas police officers pointing their guns at him because he allegedly blew a stop sign. 
Video shows the moment Tye Anders, 21, lays on his front lawn as three Midland Police officers point their guns at him from their cars because he allegedly failed to yield at a stop sign on Saturday afternoon.
Anders yelps in distress when cops order him to stand up and walk towards them.
'Put the guns down I’m scared, I’m scared,' he’s heard yelling in the viral clip. 
'He’s scared, Y’all have guns on him. He’s black. Do y’all not see how many black people are getting shot? He’s only 21, of course he’s scared,' a woman filming the scene screams at the officers.

Midland Police said that Anders failed to stop at a stop sign and continued to drive until he arrived at his grandmother’s home on Pine Street in Midland. When officers told him to exit his vehicle he refused to cooperate.
'Upon exiting the vehicle, officers advised the subject to walk towards them to be detained, the subject then stopped and laid on the ground,' cops say.
Following the altercation Andres has hired a civil rights attorney, Justin Moore from Dallas.
'We believe and maintain that this was a stop based on racial profiling and there was no traffic violation,' Moore said of the incident.

Anders had another run-in with police in January when he was convicted for possessing less than two ounces of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor in Texas.

Moore says that after Anders was handcuffed and put into the squad car, he was assaulted by another officer multiple times in the face.
'Racial profiling and pretext stops have been at pandemic levels in this country for generations. This incident falls within this age-old trend of following black men and arresting them for fabricated reasons,' he said in a statement.
He will hold a press conference Tuesday to share Anders story. 
There is no video of the attempted traffic stop nor video from police of the arrest.
