SPRINGDALE, OH (FOX19) -

The security guard at the center of a controversial video at the Tri-County Mall is no longer employed by the security company and not affiliated with the mall, Tri-County Mall announced. 

Tru Collins recorded himself inside the Tri-County Mall on Tuesday as he was being confronted by the now former security guard for not following the mall's dress code. 

The guard ordered the man out of the mall because his pants were saggy. Collins claims the security officer continually harassed him.

In the video posted on Collins' Facebook page shows the former security guard saying, ""You need to sit the d*** phone down before I f******* break it."

Collins admitted to having his pants low, but can be heard telling the security guard that he pulled up his pants.

"In the course of the interaction, the security officer conducted himself in a manner that does not meet the standards Tri-County Mall require of its security personnel," the Facebook post read. 

Tri-County Mall announced Wednesday the security guard was suspended and the mall was conducting a full investigation.
