A Black patient from Illinois was arrested while walking with an IV drip.
Shaquille Dukes was being treated at Freeport Health Network Medical hospital last month for asthma and pneumonia.
At one point he says his doctor said he should take a walk, so that’s what he did.
Dukes was accompanied by his boyfriend and his brother.
As they went outside, Dukes says has a white security guard stopped him, accusing him of trying to leave the hospital in order to sell the hospital equipment on eBay.
That’s when Dukes’ boyfriend started recording the incident on his cell phone.
The video has been viewed more than 130,000 times on Facebook.
The security guard called for police backup and all three men were arrested.
Dukes was held in the back of the police car until paramedics arrived and took them back to the hospital, still in handcuffs.
Dukes filed a complaint claiming he was racially profiled.
The Freeport Police Department says a third-party investigator will collect information on the incident.
