Stacey Wright's tirade against an African-American police officer, as well as charges for trespassing at the Waffle House, landed him in jail on Thursday.

According to the report, police were called to the restaurant at 935 S.  Jake Alexander Boulevard because Wright was there and he was refusing to leave.  The manager told police that Wright had been banned from the restaurant.

Salisbury Police officer Wilbert Brown arrested Wright on a charge of trespassing, but as he was driving Wright to jail, Wright went on a tirade, repeatedly using the familiar "n-word" racial slur to refer to Brown.  According to the report, at one point Wright told Brown "Sammy Davis, Jr. was a good (racial slur), you're a bad (racial slur).

Wright also allegedly told Brown that he would "kick his black (expletive).  The report also quotes Wright as saying "you think you have power, (racial slur)?"  And later, "You don't know God do (racial slur).  I have friends who are good (racial slur), you're a bad (racial slur).

Officer Brown pulled his patrol car and handed Wright off to other officers.  The report stated that Wright continued to be uncooperative and rude.

Wright was charged with trespassing, resisting police, communicating threats, and ethnic intimidation.  He was jailed under $5000 bond.
