Broward Public Defender’s Office is accusing a deputy of using excessive force on a handcuffed suspect.
Broward Sheriff’s Office units were called to a domestic disturbance at a Pompano Beach Walmart back in Jan. 1.
Deputy Jorge Sobrino investigated and subsequently arrested David O’Connell for resisting without violence.
Before being taken to jail, O’Connell was transported to North Broward Medical Center to be evaluated.
That’s where things took a violent turn.
In an arrest report, Sobrino claimed that O’Connell pushed him first, and in turn, he felt forced to strike.
The video, however, appears to show differently.
