Cop arrested after slamming a handcuffed man’s head into a wall (VIDEO) Austin Petersen December 12, 2013 Abuse of Authority 2083 Share2K +17 Tweet19 Pin Share Stumble1Shares 2K MARION COUNTY, FLORIDA – Marion County Corrections officer Charles Broaderick was arrested just 13 minutes after he attacked a handcuffed inmate by slamming his head into the wall. The victim James Duckworth was left with a bloody injury that needed stitches and Broaderick is now being charged with assault and has been placed on unpaid leave. Duckworth had been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving but had not been combative during his arrest, even complimenting the officer and referring to him as “gentleman” before the attack. But Broaderick can be heard projecting a different attitude. The officer can be heard saying: ‘You’re being treated how you’re acting. You’re acting like an [expletive], you’re being treated as an [expletive].’ From ClickOrlando The entire time, as Duckworth seems to go in and out of consciousness, Broaderick has his fist pushed against the side of the man’s neck, holding him up. The report also said each of the officers interviewed alleged Duckworth was combative, and either threw something at the officer or initiated the assault, but that video showed exactly what happened. Not once does the report call Duckworth combative.

Nothing left the guy’s face….. I even zoomed in and did slow-mo… THROW THE BOOK AT THE OFFICER THIS TIME! Papi December 12, 2013 Looked more like a something stuck to the lip type of “spit” and it sure as hell wasn’t aimed at anyone. Glanton December 12, 2013 Prison time is a start. One rude dude. December 12, 2013 The dude said “you are a gentleman!” And then the coppers slammed his head into the wall! what a funny world we live in today! One rude dude. December 12, 2013 Stupid life! Just relinquish any respect the police has at this point and do your dip-shit prisoner punishments! Just go ahead and kill the American people I am sure Obama will not care at all. Scum Bag December 12, 2013 that fat pos deserves to spend years in prison Guess December 12, 2013 Unpaid Leave- Are you kidding. DISGUSTING- This is outrageous- What the hell was he doing to this man ? Choking him ? What was the plastic bag ? APPALLING. Lock the prick up- this is a violent and unprovoked assault and a abuse of power. This man has no place in Law Enforcement- and is a danger to members of public. Guest December 12, 2013 He isn’t chocking him its a type of hold, the plastic bag is a spit bag it stops people from being able to well… spit on you, did the cop over do it? Yes however getting spit on is unacceptable you don’t know where that persons been or what type of disease they carry (although causing them to bleed all over the place isn’t a preferred alternative) All in all the officer in question was charged with assault which is appropriate following his actions. bill1978 December 12, 2013 Give me a break. It’s a “type of hold”? Yeah, a choke-hold. Grabbing somebody by the throat and squeezing until they change color isn’t some super technical police CQB move, it’s just choking a guy out. And you know what’s unacceptable? Getting assaulted by police while you’re cuffed. Officer Porky wasn’t wearing gloves, and who knows where his mitts have been? ThinkPink414 January 22, 2014 Imagine what was on the wall he was rubbing an open wound on… there are curved smear marks to prove it. Bubba Jenkins December 12, 2013 He obviously wasn’t spitting, he was making a childish noise with his mouth. If he was attempting to spit on the officer you would see deliberate head movement from the suspect as he tried to project the spit out to his intended target. No sir, you’re a nut hugging police state apologist with no concept of reality OTHER than what your government masters give to you. Good luck, maybe when they haul everyone off to the camps you can work as an informant for scraps like a good little doggy. Joe Shmo December 13, 2013 I disagree with the full extent of Bubba’s hypothesis, however one thing is clear he definitely wasn’t spitting and that cop deserves to rot in prison for initiateing senseless violence under the color of authority Kc Deckard Cain Ros January 6, 2014 Agreed, glad Bubba seems to think that im a fan of abusive of authority but hes free to go ahead and draw his own conclusions. Regardless, its humbling to actually see those in law enforcement punished when they break the law, god knows there have been far to many stories this last year of bad cops and federal agents getting off. ThinkPink414 January 22, 2014 If a cop was handcuffed in a seated position and a man did this to him – would you be so relaxed about it? Was this wrong? Yes. Was it more wrong because it was an officer doing it to an unarmed guy? Hell yes! Get over it buddy. This cop is the definition of pig. As is the douche standing in front of the camera to hide the blood. To top it off they are rubbing his open wound up and down a cement wall. This is more painful, and exsposing the detainee/victim to whatever may be on that wall. Aside from that, if the cop had accidentally bumped dude’s head, it would be different, but he intentionally rammed his head into the wall. If the tables were turned the guy would be charged with more than assault. Lets imagine that the wall was not the weapon, but the concrete block was instead. Also lets imagine the roles were reversed – cop sitting unable to defend himself, attacker thinks cop spit or cop did spit, attacker picks up brick and hits cops head… what happens? What are the charges? Simple assault?.. nope. Assault with a deadly weapon, lethal intent or intent to kill, assaulting police officer, kidnapping possibly, and I’d be willing to bet they would find more charges to tack on. I understand that you respect officers. Officers of the law are respectable. Pig headed, power happy, douchebag trolls with a badge however, are not. Cops need to be monitored, tested, and evaluated routinely to be the best. They have the authority so they need to be accountable. In fact, other officers (decent ones) should be holding the creep, narcissistic, sociopath cops accountable. Guess December 12, 2013 The whole lot of these freaks- need to be punished- including the nurse- They are collectively trying to give the impression he is still conscious- and SPEAKING- the man is fucking unconscious!!- Given the expert teamwork- how many times has violence taking place like this ? With other victims! Fucking outrageous ! ccreamer_22 December 12, 2013 “Marion County Corrections officer Charles Broaderick was arrested just 13 minutes after he attacked a handcuffed inmate” It sounds like the rest of the police are doing their jobs. Cudos to the Marion County Corrections in Florida. THOR 221 December 12, 2013 The guy sidded loudly by fluttering his lips. Who hasn’t done that once or twice in their life time? What a bunch of dbags! Brad Kirby December 12, 2013 The bully wasn’t looking when he heard a spitting sound. So, the obvious response to ‘thinking’ you heard someone spit on a cop is to slam their head into a wall. From what I seen here, I don’t think the bully meant to actually slam the guys’ head into the wall, but of course he over-reacted and that usually tends to cause problems like this. Since being spit on couldn’t possibly cause real injury to a person there is no reason to respond with that much force. Matt Chappel December 12, 2013 Cops actually get arrested?!?!?! Inconsistencies December 12, 2013 Imagine that, a violent cop… They are very brave under favorable conditions. Levi Dietrich December 12, 2013 watched it like 5 times, the only thing that looked REMOTELY like spitting was pursed lips… pointed at the floor Levi Dietrich December 12, 2013 maybe a hair on the lip kinda thing but it sure wasn’t aimed at anyone srsanbo December 12, 2013 The job doesn’t really pay enough to get the best and brightest. Instead, it fosters a cadre of adrenaline-junkie thugs that get off on being in control of others. There are too few that are in it for the altruism and service to the public/rule of law. Then there is the justice system, led by AG’s that are in bed with the heads of police, who protect their own and seldom pursue charges when there isn’t a blatant violation caught on video…Orwell was on to something… Marv Leis December 12, 2013 I believe after I got out of jail, I’d have a little one on one with this excuse they call a corrections officer, maybe a little attitude adjustment is what he needs. Joe Clam December 12, 2013 FINALLY! One of these despicable thugs gets put on UNPAID leave after their heinous and criminal acts. NOW let’s see this particular walking sack of testicular pus get the prison term he deserves — and probably won’t survive — and i might be tempted to begin to think about starting to maybe consider that just possibly there’s a CHANCE the tide COULD BE turning,… and the cops with consciences will someday soon hold sway in our police departments once again.. Possible? Conservativesniper December 12, 2013 broaderick is a punk and needs 5 years in general population in Raiford. Make an example out of that fat p.o.s. Teerexness December 12, 2013 If he were a cop, he’d be on “paid administrative leave” and he’d soon be “cleared after an internal investigation finds no evidence of wrongdoing”. Ben Kilpatrick December 13, 2013 Y’all can look him up on facebook. He’s the Charles Craig Broaderick who studied at College of Central Florida and who lives in Ocala, FL. Inconsistencies December 13, 2013 Any encounter you have with a cop is a life or death situation. Remember that. natdud December 13, 2013 It amazes me that the cop has the frame of mind to say, “You’re being treated how you’re acting. You’re acting like an [expletive], you’re being treated as an [expletive]” How about this….. rather than treat him like he’s acting, treat him like a respectful human being and maybe, if he wasn’t already, he will start acting like one. Trog Lodyte December 14, 2013 Two words…or is it one lol…LAWSUIT. The two officers that stated he was being combative should be placed on unpaid leave also. Reminds me of small town cops that will lie their asses off even under oath. ok4good December 15, 2013 I wonder how many times that fat sob has abused other citizens after they’ve been arrested, and gotten away with it? He needs to be charged with felony assault.
