The incident occurred on May 8, 2010. Anthony Kyser ran down an alley after shoplifting the item and he was soon cornered by the store manager. They had a brief struggle then Kyser fell to the ground. At that point Villanova got on top of him. Another man entered the scene and helped hold the alleged shoplifter down as Villanova maintained pressure on him. As the video plays out, another man joins the scene, kicking and hitting Kyser. A few others are seen as well assisting the store manager. Within a few minutes Kyser’s legs were no longer moving.
