IMPD says one of its officers will face discipline for “inappropriate language” made while subduing the suspect in a dine-and-dash at the downtown Steak ‘n Shake Thursday night.   Cellphone video captured by a bystander shows two IMPD officers attempting to subdue a man – later identified as Alex Richardson, 29 – after he allegedly left the downtown Steak ‘n Shake without paying his $12.37 tab. A waitress at the restaurant told police that when she confronted Richardson, he hunched his shoulders and “raised his right hand while making a fist” – leading her to believe she was about to be punched. Police located Richardson minutes later walking on Maryland Street. According to the incident report filed in the case, Richardson fled from officers and then physically resisted being arrested once they caught up with him.
