Video of an African-American man being detain for “illegally” eating a sandwich went viral over the weekend.
The video, which was reportedly recorded on Nov. 4, shows a black man being confronted by a white police officer at a California BART station. The clip was posted on Nov. 8 by Facebook user Bill Gluckman.
A black man holding a sandwich can be seen complaining about being detained by the officer, who is refusing to let go of the man’s bag.
“You singled me out out of all these people,” the detained man says.
“You’re eating,” the officer points out. “It’s against the law.”
The officer then informs that man that he is “going to jail.”
“For eating a f*cking sandwich,” the man protests.
Within minutes, three other officers show up to handcuff and arrest the man.
Activists on Saturday held an eat-in at the BART station to protest the arrest.
By Monday, the Facebook video had been viewed over 2.5 million times.

Ex-Trump adviser launches attack on Roger Stone’s jury forewoman — then dares her to sue him
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "Weekends," former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg went off on a rant attacking the jury forewoman in Roger Stone's trial, accusing her of being a liar and daring her to sue him.
"That trial, I had problems with it," said Nunberg. "Amy Berman Jackson, the judge, said things at the Manafort trial that made her completely conflicted to do this trial. There was an issue with the foreman. It came out she lied ... that's what Roger is appealing."
"So, Sam, you're just saying that a jury foreman and a judge were lying," said anchor Alex Witt. "Where is the proof on that?"
Trump’s ‘full-on racism’ will ‘go way uglier’ as election nears: Ex-White House official
On MSNBC Saturday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci warned that President Donald Trump's toxicity on race relations will only worsen in the run-up to the election in November.
"You were in charge, for a brief time, but for communications from this White House, and it does seem that Trump is going there because that's where he thinks he has to go," said host Joy Reid. "92 percent of African-Americans, not surprisingly, disapprove of Donald Trump's handling of race. But even 57 percent of white Americans disapprove of his handling of race relations. There's a lot of white marchers out there, marching for Black Lives Matter. Has he miscalculated and misread white people, at least the majority of them, in this moment?"
Trump leveled in brutal Never-Trumper Republican ad accusing him of turning US into a ‘banana republic’
In an ad released by Republicans Voter Against Trump, the president was accused of turning the U.S. into a "banana republic" after he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone who was convicted of multiple felonies.
Coming just hours after the president handed Stone a get-out-of-jail-card that kept him from turning himself into jail later this month, the dissident Republican group posted their new ad to Twitter which accused Stone of "lying under to oath" to protect Trump, while also noting that Stone was looking at three years in jail.
The ad also notes that a "criminal who lies to protect Trump goes free."
