Uganda Police received footage of the incident at the Grand Imperial Hotel, Kampala and arrested the suspect, identified as USA citizen Jimmy Taylor, Friday.

A U.S. citizen claiming to be a missionary has been charged with assault in Uganda after police reviewed footage of the man racially and physically abusing hotel staff. We have arrested the suspect, Jimmy Taylor, an American citizen. Video of the incident surfaced on the internet on Friday, but it is unclear when it was filmed.

Video of the incident was posted on Facebook and shows a man, identified as Taylor, striking hotel workers and telling them to obey his orders. Taylor was detained at the Central Police Station, Kampala on charges of assault. The Uganda Police Force did not immediately return HuffPost's request for comment. In the video, Taylor, apparently upset about his hotel key, jumps over the front desk and launches his attack on staff members. He follows the workers to the lobby, where he berates them and accuses them of hating Jesus. The workers try to calm him down, but Taylor continues to insult and attack them. "He was detained at the Central Police Station, Kampala on charges of assault". "I've come to love Uganda, I've come to help Uganda, but Uganda hates Jesus through this son-of-a-bitch".

The Huawei Mate 20 could be a very sexy phone!
We've heard about its future possible specs , including the upcoming Kirin 980 processor. On the software front, the Mate 20 Lite will once again disappoint like its predecessor.

Taylor later states that the employees need to "obey what I say".

"Fuck Uganda", Taylor yells at one point. Then he calls the staff "n***er bitch" adding, "You're not a human" as he smacks him in the back of the head, ranting about God and demanding his room be opened for him.

The Kampala Post reports that Taylor admitted to the attack and said "an illness caused him to suffer stress".
