Mother accuses St. Johns County deputies of police …
A mother is accusing St. Johns County deputies of police brutality against her son, Christopher Butler.
Butler’s mother sent Action News Jax a video showing what happened.
According to the St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office, three of the officers involved are on administrative leave.
Action News Jax reporter Dani Bozzini is in St. Johns County where the incidents happened.
Bozzini spoke to the mother who says her son was seriously hurt, and he didn’t deserve what was done to him.
Butler’s mother claims her son was not resisting arrest or fighting the officers as the police report reads.
The police report says Butler was driving 15 mph and was not pulling over.
The police report says Butler kicked a deputy’s leg and was hitting, kicking and even biting a deputy.
Butler’s mother said that a video given to her by a witness shows what happened after her son was pulled over.
“I’m his mom, and he’s hurt, and they did it. Christopher didn’t fight back. You saw the video – Did you ever, for once, see him hit, kick or anything? No,” she said.
She says her son had to be taken to the ICU, and she wants justice.
The St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office says it is taking this matter seriously and that the three officer officers are on administrative leave while it investigates what happened.
Bozzini is continuing to work on this story and will have more on Action News Jax FOX30, CBS47 at 10 and 11.
