The video below has resulted in the arrest of a Brooksville Florida police officer, Detention Sgt. David Dixon, after he was shown punching an inmate in the face for no apparent reason. The sheriff said that man was just “running his mouth” and did not deserve to be punched at the Hernando County Jail.
The man, Brian McCormack, 22, had been arrested on a charge of obstruction without violence when he allegedly prevented police from treating an overdose victim.
Dixon was fired from the force and then arrested on a battery charge.
