LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Customers at a grocery store took matters into their own hands after they say a man put a security guard in a choke hold.

Louisville Metro Police were called the Kroger in the 900 block of S. Second Street around 1:30 p.m. March 1 on a report of a man fighting with store security. The security guard told police Christopher Crutcher, 29, had entered the store and the guard asked "how are you?" Crutcher punched the security guard in the face and put him in a choke hold.

Witnesses told police the guard's face was changing colors and store patrons came to the aid of the guard. Crutcher was being held down by customers when officers arrived.

Crutcher was arraigned March 3 on charges of menacing and disorderly conduct. He will be back in court March 24.
