The city council will hold a special meeting Monday on the independent review.

The review released in June said "misunderstandings and failed communications'' and a "certain degree of fear'' each man had for the other led to the six-minute dispute that ended with the renowned black scholar being arrested by the veteran white Cambridge police sergeant.

Sgt. James Crowley arrested Gates for disorderly conduct at his Cambridge home July 2009 while investigating a possible burglary. Gates alleged he was a victim of racial profiling.

Charges were later dropped. The conflict sparked a national debate on race relations.
