A black couple was handcuffed by police officers outside a Florida Waffle House after a dispute with wait staff, according to footage that was posted by activist and journalist Shaun King to Facebook.
Waffle House employees called the police after the customers argued they were overcharged by 50 cents on a drink that should have cost $1.
The incident follows two other instances in which black customers' concerning encounters with police officers at Waffle House locations went viral.
"We understand the concern over these incidents, and welcome continued communication with the community, its leaders and the customers involved," Waffle House said in a statement.
Waffle House is under fire after footage from a police officer's body camera revealed a chaotic clash between a black couple and police officers at the chain.
