The Video Sheriff Claimed Didn't Exist, Recovered Shows the Brutal Beating of a Man By Deputies

Fernando Davis had been drinking on the night of his 

birthday and was sent to jail for DUI. He had no idea that 

his time in jail would lead to him being sent to the hospital 

as well.

Davis received a beating so violent that the toilet in his cell 

was filled with blood.

When Davis tried to claim the officers had assaulted him for 

no reason he was met with opposing stories from all of the 

deputies, so he hired an attorney.

Davis's attorney, Daniel Romano, knew that if the cops were 

lying, it could be proven by simply watching the surveillance 

footage from that night.

Naturally, the Sheriff's office claimed that no such tape 

existed. However, Romano found that it did in fact exist, and 

obtained a copy.

The tape clearly showed that all of the 

differing and off the 

wall claims made by deputies in their 

reports were 

completely fabricated.

Deputies claimed that Davis was being belligerent and 

starting fights with other inmates. They also claimed that he 

tried to attack them.

The video shows the exact opposite.

In solitary confinement Davis is seen with his hand against 

the wall, simply conversing with deputies, when all of the 

sudden he is swarmed by cops.

In reports and testimony, they would later acknowledge 

pepper spraying him and delivering hand and knee strikes 

to his body, saying Davis was resisting them.

"My eyesight was taken away, I had no control over my 

body," Davis told WXYZ Detroit News. "I don't know what 

they did to me, but they were laughing at me. That's the 

hurting part."

The sworn depositions taken from deputies that night, are 

so contrived that they actually contradict each other's 


Davis has since filed a federal lawsuit which deputies tried 

to get thrown out.

However, a magistrate and two judges have now ruled that 

the case should move forward after seeing this video 


Right now, all of the deputies involved are still out 

"protecting and serving."
