Four sheriff's deputies have been suspended after purposely tipping a paralyzed man out of his wheelchair onto a jailhouse floor.
Surveillance footage from Jan. 29 shows Hillsborough County deputy Charlette Marshall-Jones dumping Brian Sterner out of his wheelchair and searching him on the floor after he was brought in on a warrant after a traffic violation.
Sterner said when he was taken into booking room and told to stand up, Jones grew agitated when he told her that he could not. Obviouisly she didn't believe him. The moments were recorded by cameras in Orient Road Jail.
The Deputy involved is quoted as saying "I feel positive. When I know I'm not wrong, I feel that way. ... I do believe the truth will come out, but I can't offer more than that." But it's hard to imagine what would justify dumping a paralyzed man onto the floor.
