Authorities have released video of a former detention center officer picking up a female inmate and slamming her to the ground. The Charleston County Sheriff's Office says Officer Jonathan Lewis was fired on Friday for "violation of Detention Center Policy."
Investigators say that on Feb. 27, the sheriff's office requested the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to investigate a use of force incident involving a detention officer andan inmate.
A sheriff's office report states that the incident happened on Feb. 25 in the booking area of the Al Cannon Detention Center. After a review of the incident, the sheriff's office requested that SLED conduct an investigation, which is continuing, to determine if criminal charges are warranted against Lewis. Lewis was placed on administrative leave and then terminated on Friday. Lewis has been with the detention center since May 2007.
