The deputy has not been identified and the sheriff’s office did not release any other details about the administrative investigation, KCRA reported. CNN has reached out to the sheriff’s department for comment, but has not received a response.
At the time, the sheriff’s department and the Rancho Cordova Police Department told CNN they were investigating use of force by the deputy “in order to gain a complete and thorough understanding of the events that took place during this incident.”
In April, CNN reached out to the person who posted the video, but did not receive a response. The video does not show the beginning of the altercation or its conclusion.
The deputy lost sight of the adult who left the area, then attempted to detain the juvenile for further investigation, the statement said.
In the Twitter video, a 14-year-old boy is seen lying on the ground on his back. The department said at the time he was “uncooperative” and refused to give out his information. The teen became “physically resistive” causing the deputy to lose control of his handcuffs, when he then attempted to maintain control of the teen while waiting for backup.
According a statement on the police department’s website in April, the teen initially told the deputy he was 18 years old and the deputy later recovered tobacco products from him. The teen was cited and released to his guardians, according to the department, but the statement did not detail charges against the teen.
