AKRON, Ohio - A Summit County Sheriff's Deputy has been suspended after video showed him assaulting an inmate. Surveillance cameras were rolling in the booking area of the Summit County Jail on February 21, as 42-year-old Douglas Brown waited to be booked on a charge of disorderly conduct. Deputy Jeffrey Dempsey then instructed Brown to put down a fingerprint reader he was holding. When Brown refused, and gave him the finger, the deputy slapped him in the head and threw him to the ground.
