North Carolina town probing officer seen choking black man in prom attire

North Carolina town probing officer seen choking black man in prom attire

A night out to take care of his little sister took an unexpected turn for a 22-year-old tuxedo-clad man, when he said a Waffle House employee mistreated them, and a police officer made a decision to push him against a window and put him in a choke hold.

Anthony Wall, 22, was at a local Waffle House on May 5 after bringing his 16-year-old sister to her prom, when he supposedly got into a verbal altercation with some of the staff at the Warsaw, N.C. Waffle House.

Wall was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for the incident. Waffle House issued a statement: We are looking into the incident that occurred at our Warsaw, NC, restaurant to gather all the facts.

One video posted to Facebook on May 8 shows the white officer slamming the black male against a window, then turning him around and gripping the man's neck. We have also reached out to the District Attorney's Office to make him aware of the investigation.

"We are aware of the video and now working on an investigation, following up based on the video posted, doing interviews, gathering video evidence".

"He never said anything to me", Wall said during an interview with ABC 11.

Trump promised "quite a scene" when the three men touch down. "God Bless America, the greatest nation in the world". Shortly before their arrival, the three men released a statement thanking the Trump administration.

In the Pinson, Ala. incident, Warner said an employee at the restaurant "panicked" because only two people were working, and a large group had just left: "She got behind, panicked and locked the door". "Get your hands off of me", Wall says, before the officer throws him to the ground. When asked by the News & Observer if the officer's actions reflected the training Warsaw officers receive, Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland said that it did not.

He added that an officer can use physical force on a subject if the person is not complying.

Wall's video - which was shared Wednesday on Facebook - has been viewed over 1 million times. In the video, one officer can be heard telling the woman that he will break her arm.

Coffee giant Starbucks is initiating such training later this month at more than 8,000 USA stores after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia store while waiting for a business meeting - an incident that touched off protests and led to a wider conversation about how people of color are treated in public spaces.

Afterward, Starbucks closed all of its 8,000 US stores to give employees implicit bias training. "On May 9, I then requested the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation by telephone to investigate this matter".

Shelby says they were short staffed so she locked the doors to clear a few tables.
