Off duty cop suspended for pushing over 71 year old Wal-Mart 'greeter'

CCTV:A veteran Chattanooga police officer is off the job for one month. Investigator Kenneth Freeman got the worst punishment short of firing after shoving a 71-year-old Wal-Mart greeter.

Investigator Freeman has been suspended for 28 days without pay and must go through anger management. His conduct was found unbecoming an officer, improper procedure and excessive force.

Freeman was off duty on Christmas Eve shopping in the Collegedale Wal-Mart. A short 71 year old greeter in khaki pants named Bill Walker asked to see Freeman's receipt before he left. The police report indicates Freeman, in the black and red jacket walked past the greeter when he wanted to check his receipt.

The alarm went off and the greeter ran after Freeman and grabbed him with his left arm. The overhead camera from the door leading outside shows Freeman shoves the greeter about six feet, off his feet W
