HORROR: Ralph Weems, a 32-year-old Iraq war veteran, was in a medically induced coma after he and another man were attacked in the parking lot of a Huddle House restaurant by up to 20 people in West Point, Miss.

Weems, from West Point, and his friend, David Knighten, had originally gone to a Waffle House early Saturday when a man allegedly told them that the restaurant “wasn’t a safe place for whites because of the Ferguson” protests over the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer.

Police arrested Courtez McMillian of Okolona, Miss., Monday evening. He is facing an aggravated assault charge and is being held in the Clay County Detention Center. Other arrests are forthcoming.

Police was called to the argument at the Waffle House between Ralph Weems and the men. He and Knighten left and on their way to his house, they stopped at Huddle House. They were followed by 20 men, according to David Knighten, where Weems was attacked.

The vicious attack on Ralph Weems is just reprehensible. We urge anyone with information to contact the West Point Police Department at 662-494-1244 or call Crime Stoppers at 800-530-7151.

Here’s a comment from someone close to Ralph Weems that was left on our site:

I know this story is confusing, but I need to make a clarification:

1) Ralph and his friend went to Waffle House. His friend was stopped by an unknown black man to tell him it was unsafe as the patrons had worked themselves into a frenzy. Ralph, unfortunately, continued walking as the unknown man stopped him. Jeering immediately started when Ralph entered. Police were called. Ralph and his friend were safely removed from the Waffle House.

2) On the way home, Ralph and his friend saw the Huddle House was empty and stopped there. Once seated, his friend went to the bathroom and Ralph went outside for a smoke… Some of the mod had followed them and Ralph was attacked outside. He was knocked unconscious and 5 or 6 black men kicked him in the head as a group of up to 20 cheered them on. “what happened in Missouri is now happening to you”.

3) Leaving the bathroom, his friend was attacked by two other black men. The sound of sirens caused the group to disperse. A waitress or cook called 911

4) Ralph was rushed to West Point, MS hospital, but it was obvious his injuries were too severe for their facility. He was flown to Northeast Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, MS. He remains in a coma and his prognosis is bleak. Doctors are confident he will live, but “never be the same”. His speech and motor functions are in question.
