A federal grand jury in London, Kentucky returned a two-count indictment on Thursday, June 28, 2018 charging Brandon McIntosh, a former deputy of the Rockcastle County Sheriff’s Office, with violating the civil rights of an arrestee by using excessive force against him and then filing a false report to obstruct the investigation of that assault. The indictment alleges that on November 6, 2016, McIntosh assaulted P.D., an arrestee, using a dangerous weapon, resulting in bodily injury. The indictment further alleges that McIntosh filed a false report stating that P.D. had become combative and the least amount of force was used to get him under control. If convicted, McIntosh faces a maximum term of imprisonment for 10 years on the civil rights charge and 20 years on the obstruction charge.
