The man who took the video said the man in the wheelchair caused a small disturbance inside the restaurant and was kicked out when security guards started fighting him outside.

In a statement posted on Facebook, restaurant officials said: "The actions that the independent security company took in this matter are not acceptable and do not reflect Jalisco's mission or core values. Effective immediately, we will have a new security company."

Milwaukee police said they were called out to the restaurant, and the investigation is ongoing.
