    CVS Health is apologizing after a black customer says white store managers in Chicago accused her of trying to use a phony coupon.

    Camilla Hudson posted cellphone video of one of the managers appearing nervous. Morry Matson's left hand shakes as he calls police around 11:30 p.m. Friday.

    The 53-year-old Hudson says another manager directly challenged her when she tried to use a manufacturer's coupon for a free product. She tells The Associated Press that he was "hostile."

    The Facebook video show Matson talking to police on the phone. No action was taken when officers arrived.

    Matson is running for Chicago City Council and was a state delegate for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.
