Excessive Force by Police – 5 Deputies Suspended

  Ocala, Florida – Five Marion County sheriff’s deputies have been suspended after the agency found they used excessive force while serving arrest warrants. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is currently investigating the actions of Deputies Jesse Terrell, Cody Hoppel, Adam Crawford, Trevor Fitzgerald and James Amidei who were suspended without pay.  Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) handed off this investigation after investigating the claim of Derrick Price who stated that he was the victim of excessive force and the evidence contained in the video of Price’s arrest and mugshot showing facial bruising and scrapes. According to law enforcement, on August 7, 2014, the deputies were serving five arrest warrants when the incident occurred which led to a “use of force” review by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.  The incident followed a three-month long investigation, during which deputies seized cocaine, $39,000 in cash, prescription drugs, guns and luxury vehicles from a Marion County home.
