An investigation has begun into this disturbing video of a Florida deputy dumping a quadriplegic man out of his wheelchair while he is being booked on Jan. 29. Deputy Charlotte Marshall Jones is shown on the video as she cruelly tosses the man, Brian Sterner, 32, out of his wheelchair and on the floor.
Sterner was arrested on traffic related charges. For the video, click here.

The treatment could result in a tort action. There is no difference between beating a prisoner and using his disability to injure him. At a minimum, Jones appears wholly unsuited for service as an officer. Both she and the Sheriff’s office can also prepare for the inevitable civil lawsuit.
