Police in North Carolina are under fire after a video emerged of an officer choking and slamming an African-American male. This incident reportedly came about in front of a waffle house. The young man, Anthony Wall, had taken his 16-year-old sister out for a bite following prom. He reportedly got into an argument with the restaurant employees, police were called, and that, is when things took a turn for the worst.
“I was pretty much trying to scream for air and trying to breathe because he was holding my throat and that’s when I got aggressive with him because you are choking me”, Mr Wall said.
The town of Warsaw, North Carolina’s chief of police told the Raleigh News & Observer that his department was investigating the incident.
