The incident comes amid a national backlash over the arrest of two black men last week inside a Philadelphia Starbucks

Video shows white officers throwing black woman to floor at Waffle House

"I'm about to break your arm, that's what I'm about to do", one officer told Clemons.

Video captured a black woman being stripped half-naked while being manhandled by police during an arrest. Her top somehow gets pulled down, exposing her chest. The men were arrested for trespassing, but the backlash in response to the incident eventually led the Philadelphia police commissioner to personally apologize and Starbucks announced that it would close 8,000 stores in the USA for racial bias training. She was informed it would costs 50 cents, which prompted Clemons and Adams to tell the employee they had not been charged for the plastic ware at the restaurant the night before when they had bought food from there. Clemons asked an officer, to which he responded, "I'll break your arm, that's what I'm about to do". Clemons can be heard yelling, "What are you doing?" as officers attempted to handcuff her on the ground. It is unclear if he was arrested as a police spokesman declined to comment on his status when asked by a reporter on the scene.

Clemons is shown pleading with them while remaining partially nude on the floor of the Waffle House as patrons and staff watched the incident unfold.

Calgary Flames name Bill Peters as new head coach — CP NewsAlert
He never finished higher than sixth in the Hurricanes' division, while also failing to make the playoffs in all four years. Peters was recently named as the head coach for Canada's national team for the 2018 IIHF World Championship in May.

In a post on Facebook, friends of the woman said she was arrested after an argument with a Waffle House waitress over refusal to provide free plastic tableware. It does not capture the woman using vulgar language at any point, though it does show her appealing to another officer from her seat after the first cop puts hands on her.

Clemons was booked on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and placed on $1,000 bond. A spokeswoman for the Saraland Police Department declined to say whether tasers and body-worn cameras are standard equipment in the city.

The incident happened a week after two black men were arrested while waiting to meet a friend at a Philadelphia branch of Starbucks, with the NAACP now investigating what happened. The situation is being thoroughly reviewed and is under active investigation right now.

The road head at the pump looks quite ominous if that demand number proves common in the coming weeks. Georgia motorists pay $6 more for a full tank of gasoline compared a year ago.

In response, the employee canceled the order, prompting Clemons to ask for the contact information of the Waffle House district manager who oversees the Saraland location, reported. "Our department strives for transparency and we encourage our community to be aware of current events", a statement from police said Sunday.

Mobile County, Alabama's NAACP chapter said in a statement that they were aware of the incident and discussed it at their meeting on Sunday.
