A police officer in Kansas City could be seen on video kneeling on a Walmart customer’s neck after accusing the man of stealing a $5 frozen pizza, a report said. Dayton Borisouth, 24, told KCTV that he had just purchased the pizza at the self-checkout on June 1 and was walking out of the store when the officer asked for his receipt.

He decided to run in and grab a pizza for dinner later that night and didnt even bother to put it in a bag. Borisouth said he was detained in a police car for an hour. He was released an hour later after police determined the receipt was valid, but was issued a summons for refusing to comply. Afterward, he said he went back to the store to exchange his now-thawed pizza for a frozen one
