CCSO Deputy Under Investigation For Use Of Force Incident In Doney Park Wednesday

A Coconino County Sheriff’s deputy is under investigation for a use of force incident Wednesday in Doney Park. Deputies were called to an area off Silver Saddle Road on a trespassing report. When they arrived, deputies found probable cause to arrest three people for trespassing and other misdemeanor charges. While one of the suspects was in handcuffs being taken to a patrol vehicle, a struggle ensued and she was able to briefly pull away from the arresting deputy. The deputy struck her twice in the face with their fist and control was re-established. A sergeant on the scene immediately stepped in and the suspect was taken to the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility without further incident. The suspect suffered minor injuries from the altercation. Due to the deputy’s use of force on a handcuffed suspect, CCSO has asked the Flagstaff Police Department to conduct a criminal investigation into the actions of the deputy to see if the officer’s actions were justified under CCSO policies and procedures. The deputy has been placed on administrative leave pending the investigation.
