LAKELAND, Fla. — A video showing what appears to be a Polk County deputy punching a handcuffed suspect two times before placing him inside the back of a marked deputy cruiser is making rounds on social media.
The graphic video, sent to ABC Action News on Thursday, shows a man wearing a neon green t-shirt, later identified as 20-year-old Fernando Jimenez, being taken into custody by two Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
As one of the deputies holds Jimenez to the back of the cruiser, the second deputy appears to have punched Jimenez twice before placing him inside.
One of the punches appears to have hit Jimenez in the head.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the deputy punched Jimenez “whenever he was trying to get him under control.”

I was very curious as to the name Donald horoxx on your website. He is a corrupt judge here in Pinellas county. Just wondering what he has to do with your website? Pray you never have to go before him. Trust me
