Predictably, police have been speedy to decide Butler used to be excessive on PCP however his legal professional says he was once struggling from a diabetic match and used to be now not capable to comply with police officer commands.
According to News4Jax, St., Johns County Sheriff David Shoar in March filed a crook cost of aggravated battery in opposition to Anthony DeLeo for his use of pressure towards Christopher Butler.
The incident started 12/29 with Butler being located using 15 mph on I-95, the interstate with minimal speeds set at 55mph.
As First Coast News factors out, the video indicates Deleo hitting Butler 19 instances with his baton and kicked him in the head and face for the subsequent three minutes and forty-four seconds, the warrant says.
Such use of pressure can include, closed fist strikes such as Butler acquired whilst acting to be seated on asphalt, rarely a chance to anyone.
If the police have been now not profitable in getting Butler out of the car they would have been justified with sending a K9 thru the window, as we've got considered before.
