An Army veteran who uses a wheelchair was pepper sprayed by police in Muskogee, Oklahoma after he refused to show his ID while trying to buy alcohol at a Walmart, reported KJRH.com.

The video shows a pack of police officers descending on the man and trying to pull him from the Walmart motorized scooter and into his wheelchair. They also pepper sprayed him.

In a statement about the incident, the Muskogee police department said the man had been resisting arrest. “Officers were called to the scene, and the man also refused to identify himself to officers,” police said in a statement.

“He was advised that if he did not provide his ID he would be obstructing officers. He was told he was going to be placed under arrest for obstruction, and that he trespassed from Walmart property.”

“The man was told that he would be pepper sprayed if he continued to resist arrest, so he was pepper sprayed,” the statement continued. “The man continued to resist officers until he was placed into handcuffs.”

The man claimed the tussle left him with injuries. He was taken to a local hospital.

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.
