In Tennessee, Deputy Tanya Mayhew of the Davidson County Sheriff’s office can scratch dentistry off her list of possible moonlighting jobs. Anthony McCoy, 31, will receive $100,000 after Mayhew ripped his gold grill out of his mouth during booking.
McCoy was arrested on the failure to pay child support, harassment and a protection violation. Mayhew told him to remove the gold grill over his teeth but Mayhew insisted that was cemented in place. Mayhew proceeded to reach into his mouth and rip out the grill and stripping away the enamel off his teeth.
While he was spitting blood, deputies told him to get back in line and failed to take steps to attend to his obvious injury, here. The damage to his teeth was $10,000 and he was denied any medical attention beyond Tylenol for ten days.
