A woman who says she was dragged by a deputy through a South Florida courthouse hallway has filed a lawsuit in federal court.
The SunSentinel (http://bit.ly/2bNJZgj ) reports that Dasyl Rios is accusing the Broward County Sheriff's Office, Sheriff Scott Israel and detention Deputy Christopher Johnson of violating her civil rights last year as she sobbed and pleaded with the deputy to stop dragging her down a Broward County courthouse hallway.
Rios, then 28, had just been declared mentally incompetent during a trespassing and criminal mischief case.
The Sheriff's Office didn't prosecute deputy Johnson, who was given a written reprimand. He remains on the job.
