VIRAL: Officer puts man in chokehold inside Waffle House after prom

Video of the incident shows Clemons, who is black, being thrown to the ground and having her breasts exposed during a scuffle with several police officers.

We are now investigating the whole incident, interviewing witnesses and gathering additional video.

"We're once again outraged by a video showing police officers using excessive force on an unarmed, non-violent African-American Waffle House customer", the organization's Legal Defense Fund president and director-counsel Sherrilyn Ifill said in a statement.

Anthony Wall took his little sister to the prom on Saturday, no doubt expecting the outing to be a pleasant memory for them both.

"We train our employees to call the police whenever they feel in danger, or if they feel their customers are in danger", the company's statement continued.

The video picked up after that point.

Wall can be heard screaming "Get your hands off me!" as the officer wrestles him to the ground and handcuffs him. Wall told ABC11 he only wanted to raise awareness.

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". But when police were called, one of the officers - who was twice his size - began to choke him. "You don't have to touch me".

Wall later posted a video of his arrest to Facebook.

"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.

Wall did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland told The News & Observer of Raleigh that his department and the district attorney's office are investigating, and more information will be released.

"We are now investigating the whole incident, interviewing witnesses and gathering additional video". He was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. "He grabbed me and slammed me against the window".

"What happens next is unclear".

The officer in the video has not been formally identified. It is not clear from the video who initiated the struggle that forced Clemons and the officers to the tile floor.

"What are you doing?"

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

The incident comes after Chikesia Clemons, 25, controversial arrest.

On May 29, Starbucks plans to close all of its stores nationwide for an afternoon of racial bias training.

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