Police swarmed a Buckeye, Arizona Walmart during the Black Friday sales after a man inside was tackled to the ground during a rush to grab video games.
A grandfather was with his grandson looking at video games. They said people were tearing the box of games apart, trying to get to the videos, and a woman ended up getting punched, and the grandson was trampled on.
That’s when his grandpa put the game in his waistband so that he could lift the boy out of the crowd. A cop grabbed the grandfather and slammed him to the ground, thinking the man was stealing the game.
Cops said their actions were justified because the old man was resisting.
Since force was used, the arrest is under investigation. The officer involved is still on the job.
Grandpa faces shoplifting charges.
