A sheriff's deputy in Florida was suspended without pay after she was caught on a surveillance camera dumping a quadriplegic man from his wheelchair. The video shows Deputy Charlotte Marshall Jones dumping 32-year-old Brian Sterner onto the floor on January 29. She was reportedly booking him in the Hillsborough County Jail.

Jones then frisks Sterner as he lays on the floor.

Sterner, who drives, reportedly broke his neck during a wrestling accident when he was 18.

Records show his arrest was due to charges of fleeing and attempting to elude an officer. Those same records show Sterner was cited at that time for blocking an intersection.
