Sacramento’s finest caught on tape…again

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday announced it was investigating a use-of-force incident in which a deputy was captured on video pinning a 14-year-old boy on the ground as he struggled to subdue the teen in Rancho Cordova.

The video of the deputy subduing the teen, who is African American, has been widely circulated on various social media platforms.

Sgt. Tess Deterding, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, said Tuesday that the investigation into the incident, which occurred Monday, “is in its infancy” and the facts investigators know now are subject to change as they “conduct a more thorough and complete examination of the circumstances.”
