A sheriff's deputy has been fired, accused of using excessive force with a Taser stun gun.
Deputy Jeff Ledlow, 24, was fired Friday after a three-month investigation.
Ledlow was involved in arresting a man at the Quality Inn on U.S. 1 in Vero Beach in August. The suspect, Jamie Brown, was wanted for allegedly failing to register as a sex offender and battery.
Ledlow used the Taser on Brown multiple times, but lied about it on the police report, according to the sheriff's office. Investigators had a Taser International representative check out Ledlow's stun gun to determine how many times it was used. They also interviewed other deputies and reviewed dashboard camera footage in the inquiry. The video shows Brown yelling at the deputies in the back of a squad car. According to the sheriff's office investigation, Ledlow told the other deputy to stop the car, which is when the alleged excessive use of the Taser occurred. "I can't feel my body," Brown said in video recorded as the patrol car approached the Indian River County Jail. "Please tell
them to call a nurse."
The sheriff's office ultimately determined Ledlow used unnecessary force and he was fired.
