Timothy James, an officer with the Jacksonville, Florida, sheriff's office, has been charged with battery after pulling a 17-year-old suspect out of a patrol car and throwing him to the ground. When a sergeant told him to put the boy back in the car, he did but struck him several times with his fist as the sergeant told him to stop.
