The treatment of a 25-year-old black Mobile woman who was arrested early Sunday morning inside a Waffle House in Saraland by white Saraland Police officers is quickly driving outrage in Alabama and beyond.
Chikesia Clemons, whose arrest was captured on graphic video that is currently going viral on social media, will be speaking to members of the Mobile County NAACP Branch Sunday afternoon. Several community members held a sit-in protest Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of the Waffle House where the incident took place.
“What are you doing?” Clemons asks at one point, to which an officer responds, “I’ll break your arm, that’s what I’m about to do.”
