A new video has emerged showing what took place at a North Carolina Waffle House when officers were called because a group of patrons started a fight with employees.
The incident grew widespread attention after a brief video of a responding officer appeared to show him briefly choke 22-year-old Anthony Wall, who was resisting arrest. Wall was wearing a tuxedo as he had taken his younger sister to her prom that night.
In the new video, Wall and his sister can be seen cursing at and threatening employees, as well as footage of Wall’s eventual arrest.
Warsaw mayor A.J. Connors defended the officer’s actions in a video posted to Facebook. Connors, who is black, said race played no role in the officer’s actions. “We must understand that this young man broke the law,” the mayor said. “He was there. He started a fight, this officer did what he had to do.”
Wall is currently facing charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Wall’s attorney is making a claim that a Waffle House employee started the fight by calling Wall a homophobic slur.
