SBI investigating viral video of NC officer putting man in chokehold

12 May 2018

The police did not make public the name of the officer captured on video, but Moss was later identified by civil rights activist Shaun King on Twitter. Any additional information regarding what happened, including any pending charges, Southerland explained, will be released following an investigation into the incident.

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.

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 Wall video comes on the heels of the April 22 arrest of 25-year-old Chikesia Clemons at a restaurant in Saraland, Ala.

Police say employees called them because Clemons appeared to be drunk and witnesses say they were afraid of her behavior.

The video picked up after that point. The officer then slams him to the pavement with his left hand on Wall's head as other young people stand around them, recording the scene. "Get your hands off of me", Wall says.

Seconds later, the officer slammed Wall to the ground in front of the gold Mercedes-Benz that Wall and his sister had posed by for pictures hours earlier.

Krushnelnyski's goal was the 53 shot on Checkers goalie Alex Nedeljkovic. The game-winner came at 1:09 Bojangles' Coliseum in Charlotte.

Some of the audio is hard to understand, but it does seem clear that Wall says loudly "Get your hands off me!" multiple times and "get your supervisor" while a woman's voice off camera can be heard saying "I'm glad I'm recording this". The video of the incident that was posted to Facebook has prompted an investigation by the Warsaw Police Department. "You don't have to touch me".

Outraged, Wall took to Facebook to upload the video of the incident, with the accompanying caption: "This have to stop please help by share reporting to ever news report u know please".

But he told WTVD that he "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", Wall said.

"I'm about to break your arm, that's what I'm about to do", one of the officers responds.

"Our review of these incidents do not indicate race was an issue in the decision to call the police in either case", the statement said. Asked if the officer's conduct reflected department training, chief Eric Southerland said no, the New & Observer reports.

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