Officer Caught Choking Black Man Outside Waffle House Under Investigation

Officer Caught Choking Black Man Outside Waffle House Under Investigation

Waffle House has become embroiled in a new public scandal, and African-American activists are calling for a boycott.

Wall said that he takes full responsibility for his interaction with Waffle House employees, but he told ABC11 the cop's actions were not justified.

"Get your hands off of me", Wall is heard screaming as the officer, with his hand still around Wall's neck, proceeds to slam him onto the ground.

"I was pretty much trying to scream for air and trying to breathe because he was holding my throat", Wall explained during an interview with WTVD.

Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland has since announced that he will be opening an internal investigation into the alleged excessive force, and that Moss will be reprimanded if he is found to be guilty of misconduct.

It ended with the 22-year-old black man in handcuffs and face down outside a Waffle House.

Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland said in a statement that authorities are now investigating the incident and Moss' actions do not reflect what his officers are trained to do in such situations.

Waffle House CEO Walt Ehmer spoke Friday to the Fayetteville man who was put in a chokehold outside a Warsaw Waffle House after prom.

The video, which was filmed by a bystander outside of the restaurant, captures the moment an unidentified officer slams 22-year-old Anthony Wall against the establishment's window before placing his hands around Wall's neck.

Anthony Wall took his little sister to the prom on Saturday, no doubt expecting the outing to be a pleasant memory for them both. He was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. An employee asked them to get up.

" 'I'll break your arm, that's what I'm about to do, ' an officer says".

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.

"The officer made every effort to secure him so that the public would be safe", he said.

The video has been shared more than 2,000 times. Her complaint for having to pay 50 cents for eating utensils prompted them to call police officers, and officers pinned her down on the floor, pulling her top down, which exposed her breast as officers arrested her.

We must warn you, this footage is very hard to watch.
