BOLIVIA, NC - An Erwin man is suing Brunswick County, claiming sheriff's deputies stripped him naked, peppered-sprayed him and beat him after he was wrongfully arrested.
The following is a video from Brunswick County Jail surveillance camera posted on YouTube by Damien Guarniere, who has filed a lawsuit stemming from the incident.
Damien Guarniere filed a lawsuit earlier this month against Brunswick County, three sheriff's deputies, former Brunswick County Sheriff Ronald Hewett in his official capacity, an Ocean Isle Beach police officer and the town of Ocean Isle Beach.
The lawsuit states Ocean Isle Beach Police Officer Parks Reid arrested Guarniere in September 2007 and charged him with driving while impaired. Though his breath alcohol test showed a 0.06 percent blood alcohol content, below the legal limit, a Brunswick County magistrate ordered he be held in jail, according
