Man Who Was Peppersprayed Has Case Continued Again

A man who was arrested at a local Walmart on Black Friday had his case continued once again on Monday. Gordon Jackson, a former Kinston police officer, is charged with disorderly conduct in Lenoir County.

According to police, an off duty officer who was hired by Walmart to work security used pepper spray when trying to quell a disturbance.

Jackson told WITN that all he did was say to an officer they probably shouldn't have sprayed the pepper spray with so many kids and elderly folks around. Jackson says that's when he was asked to leave and when he turned to do so, he says officers threw him on merchandise and cuffed him.

Jackson was original court date was January 23, but it was continued to March 5. There is no new date yet for Jackson's next appearance.
