A struggle between Rural King employees and an alleged shoplifter is still not resolved. It happened over the weekend at the Rural King on Morgan St., and was captured on cell phone video.
The man being held down in the video is David Brand of Evansville.
Brand suffered multiple injuries in the struggle. A medical report lists a sprained neck, back, lumbar and spine. Multiple abrasions are readily seen on brand's knees, chest and head.
According to Evansville Police and Rural King, Brand had been suspected of shoplifting. When he was confronted, they say Brand assaulted employees.
Brand says that isn't what happened. He says the employees in the video attacked him without being provoked.
Rural King representative Tim Lodis says that even if his fellow employees had suspicion of shoplifting, it is against store policy to confront the perpetrator.
