As a confrontation at a restaurant in Columbia, S.C., quickly spun out of control, a witness began video recording the incident involving an off-duty deputy and a female soldier. The video shows the deputy attempting to arrest the soldier following an argument at the establishment.
However, veteran deputy and former U.S. Marine Paul Derrick, 49, was ultimately arrested and charged with assault after police reviewed the cellphone video and determined the cop acted inappropriately. He has also been placed on leave without pay following the Oct. 7 incident at Buffalo Wild Wings.
