Police investigate viral video of officer putting NC man in chokehold
WARSAW, NC (WTVD) — Warsaw police are investigating after a video went viral of one of its officers putting a man in a chokehold.
The incident happened on Saturday at Waffle House.
Anthony Wall,22, had just taken his 16-year-old sister to prom and went to grab a bite to eat when he said he got into an argument with several wait staff members.
From there, police were called to remove Wall, which led to him being choked, slammed, and led away in handcuffs.
“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,” said Wall.
