Jury Selection To Begin In Trial Of Ex-Deputy Charged With Beating Motorist
An ex-deputy with the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, seen on video beating a man during a December 2019 traffic stop, will go on trial this week on a charge of aggravated battery.
Deputy Anthony DeLeo was arrested after two videos recorded by a witness showed his use of force against Christopher Butler. The videos were given to Butler’s family, who turned them over to investigators.
DeLeo was fired from the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.
