A lawsuit has been filed in connection with the brutal beating of a man by Humphreys County deputies that was caught on dashcam video.
The federal lawsuit was filed Friday morning on behalf of Darrin Ring, who was stripped, beaten and tasered last January. During the altercation, deputies repeatedly yelled at Ring to "stop resisting."
The lawsuit names Humphreys County, the city of Waverly, Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis, Humphreys County deputies James McCord and James Lee, as well as Waverly Police officers Joseph Parnell and Kinta Bell.
The complaint filed claims the officers used excessive force, and asks that Ring be awarded "substantial punitive damages" for emotional and physical pain, but did not specify an amount.
Ring was initially charged with aggravated assault on an officer and held in jail for five months. The charges were dropped after the District Attorney viewed the dashcam video. Ring suffered four broken ribs and a punctured lung.
The three deputies involved were placed on administrative leave with pay while TBI investigates the incident.
