Three black actresses claim they were arrested at a restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, for allegedly taking too long in the restroom.

Erica Walker, Brittany Marie Lucio and Asia'h Sharrell Epperson asked to use the restroom at Houston's Restaurant in Atlanta on May 13. According to a police report obtained by Newsweek, an off-duty Atlanta Police Department officer who also worked at Houston's was asked by the shift manager to remove the women from the bathroom because it was after 10 p.m. and they had been asked to leave twice.

The officer stated that he found the three women using their cell phones when he walked into the restroom. When he asked the women to leave, they ignored him and laughed when asked to leave by the officer a second time. After asking a third time, the officer grabbed Lucio's wrist and asked the shift manager to open the back door. Lucio asked the officer to "let go" and slipped away from the officer's grip before saying, "Get your hands off of me."


"The Atlanta Police Department is aware of the excessive force accusations made by the arrestees and the Office of Professional Standards has opened an investigation into [the] entire incident for appropriate action and whether proper procedures were followed," the statement read.
