Days ago, a disturbing nude shooter killed four at a Tennessee Waffle House. Now, the beloved restaurant is making headlines again as video footage has spread through social media showing an unpleasant interaction between an Alabama Waffle House patron and police officers.
Chikesia Clemons, a 25-year-old black Mobile resident, was arrested by three white male Saraland Police officers at the Alabama Waffle House. The entire incident was recorded by witnesses. In the video, police officers pull the suspect from a chair and throw her to the ground. Police pull the suspects arms and push against her neck which causes her top to be ripped down. Her breasts were exposed by police as they threatened to break her arm.
At 2:45 A.M. police arrested Clemons and charged her with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Reports show the suspect’s mother was able to post a $1,000 bond for Clemons. The smartphone video of the arrest was posted on social media and has since gone viral.
This horrific show of police force occurred because Clemons was upset when Waffle House attempted to charge her 50 cents for plastic utensils. The suspect had refused to pay the extra money, so the Waffle House employee canceled her entire order. While Clemons was waiting for staff to provide her with the district manager’s contact information, police arrived on the scene.
The Saraland Police Department is investigating the incident. In response to the viral video, residents gathered to protest the arrest on Sunday afternoon at the Alabama Waffle House. During the protest, one black male was arrested.
