On his way out he was immediately grabbed by a uniformed, off-duty Atlanta police officer working security for the store. Upon grabbing Mr. Carnegay by the shirt, the officer starts wailing on him with his baton.

A lawsuit has been filed against Walmart, the manager on duty, and the police officer. The officer found the receipt for the purchase after beating the man.
For pain, suffering, and a permanent injury, I hope the verdict goes into the millions if it goes to trial. If settled out of court, I still hope that it's a very costly lesson for those responsible for victimizing Mr. Carnegay.
