Video shows teen choked by police officer outside North Carolina Waffle House

Video Shows White Cop Choking a Black Prom-Goer Outside a North Carolina Waffle House

The video shows the white officer slamming the black teenager against a window, then turning him around before gripping the teen's neck.

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

Video of the incident was picked up by national news outlets, including the New York Post, as well as civil rights activist and author Shaun King, who uses social media tohighlight incidents of perceived police brutality and racism. 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.

He wound up getting charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for the scuffle and suffered injuries to his back and arm. Wall was still dressed in his black-and-tan tuxedo vest when the incident occurred at a Waffle House in Warsaw, North Carolina.

In a video that has now gone viral, Anthony is seen with his hands in the air before the officer places his hands around his neck.

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

Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland told the Raleigh News and Observer that his officers are not trained to react to situations in that manner.

Connors, a pastor who also worked as the chaplain for the police department before he was elected previous year as mayor of the small town about an hour south of Raleigh, said that the officer used force because Wall "refused to cooperate or follow them or obey the law".

Trump to discuss trade with China's Xi as talks continue
Posts about unusual traffic jams and security in Dalian popped up on Chinese social media. On North Korea, both sides reiterated the need to denuclearise the country.

Warsaw police said they had begun an investigation, but did not offer further details.

"We are aware of the video and now working on an investigation, following up based on the video posted, doing interviews, gathering video evidence". Police were reportedly called to the restaurant after Wall got into an argument with employees there.

The officer in the video has not been identified.

"This is not a racially motivated issue", Warsaw Mayor A.J. Connors said in the video.

The Alabama incident immediately sparked comparisons to the arrest of two men at a Philadelphia Starbucks as they waited for a third man to arrive to talk about business investment opportunities.

Waffle House, which has more than 2,100 locations in 25 states, said in a statement that it was looking into last week's arrest to "gather all the facts" and that it continued to cooperate with police.

"I wish people would not blow things out of proportion and not let one situation create any additional situations", Southerland remarked.
