Ex-Deputy Charged In The Slapping Of Kid (Video)

SANDOVAL COUNTY, N.M.

KOAT, Reported that Fred Switzer, 70, and another deputy restrained a boy in a patrol car after an August court appearance.

The video appears to show Officer Switzer slap the boy several times while restrained in handcuffs in the back of the cruiser.

My opinion:

What is disturbing is… not only did the video show a horrific attack, but a video that clearly shows an officer in uniform.

Switzer faces a petty misdemeanor. If convicted, he could spend up to 6 months in jail and or a $500 fine.

Stay tuned as we will try and update..
