Wash Co Sheriff Deputy Should Not Face Charges For Recent Use Of Force Incident, According To MI AG
A Washtenaw County deputy sheriff should not face charges in a “use of force incident” in Ypsilanti Township from last May.
WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton about the decision handed down Tuesday afternoon.
A video of the incident shows the woman deputies were trying to subdue was resisting arrest and biting the deputy... who still remains off the job following the incident.
He says while "dismayed and disturbed by the incident," he expects some opposition in the community by people not satisfied by the decision.
