The video shows the white officer slamming the black teenager against a window, then turning him around before gripping the teen's neck.
The district attorney, who serves Duplin, Sampson, Jones and Onslow counties, said he was made aware Wednesday afternoon, May 9, of the May 4 incident at the Waffle House, located on N.C. 24 near Interstate 40, not far from the Sampson-Duplin line.
Wall can be heard screaming "Get your hands off me!" as the officer wrestles him to the ground and handcuffs him. It's also the second occurrence in two months in which Waffle House staff called police about a black customer. Wall told ABC11 he only wanted to raise awareness.
According to reports, Wall had just taken his younger sister to prom. He didn't detail what led to the fight with workers. He accepts responsibility for his actions within the waffle house, but admits that the excessive force used by the authorities was unnecessary. But when police were called, one of the officers - who was twice his size - began to choke him.
WTVD reported that police were called to remove Wall from the eatery, and that's when things went downhill and an officer's hands ended up wrapped around Wall's throat.
Five days later the video went viral, which is when Warsaw Police contacted the SBI and Lee's office to investigate.
Warsaw Police Chief Eric Southerland said in a statement that authorities are now investigating the incident and Moss' actions do not reflect what his officers are trained to do in such situations.

It wasn't immediately clear what might have prompted the officer's use of force. "Once the investigation is complete and the District Attorney has had a chance to review the case we will provide the public with an update on the findings".
King also noted that, as he was pulling content off the Warsaw Police Department's Facebook page, the page was deleted.
The incident occurred after Wall got into an argument with restaurant employees, who allegedly cursed at Wall and his sister for sitting at a booth that had not been cleaned. "And once against the police responded with violence". An employee asked them to get up.
"The chokehold maneuver is what I have an issue with", he added.
Now, in the aftermath of the latest incident, Bernice King is calling for people to boycott Waffle House until the company commits to a more in-depth discussion on racism.
The incident comes after Chikesia Clemons, 25, controversial arrest.
On the subject of Wall's Facebook video, which has been viewed half a million times, Southerland said that the comments "get ugly".
