Anthony Hall did a noble big brother act and took his teen sister to her high school prom in, and the pair went out to grab a bite to eat after. What the 16-year-old didn’t know was that the fun night out would suddenly take a left turn after an encounter with a white police ficer at a North Carolina Waffle House became brutal.

Charlotte News & Observer reports:

A video posted to Facebook on May 8 shows a North Carolina police ficer choking a man wearing prom attire and slamming him to the ground.

Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland told The News & Observer in an interview Wednesday that the ficer in the video is a part the Warsaw Police Department. Warsaw is about an hour south and east Raleigh.

The department and District Attorney Ernie Lee are investigating the incident May 5, Southerland said. Southerland did not identify the ficer or the man involved in the video.

According to Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland, which is about one hour southeast Raleigh where the incident reportedly took place, the ficer did not act properly. An investigation into the matter has been launched, but outrage by way the incident has since exploded after the video posted by Hall went viral.
