A Greenville County, S.C., sheriff's deputy accidentally shot the mother of a man she was trying to arrest for shoplifting from a convenience store. Bodycam video shows the deputy, identified by local media as Ashley Cure, confront Sean Theodore Kaiser outside his home. He went into the home and the deputy followed. She tried to put him in handcuffs, but Kaiser grabbed her. The deputy broke free and pulled her gun. The mother begged her to go outside and wait for backup, but the deputy refused. Kaiser then charged the deputy, who fired her gun, striking the mother. Seconds later, another deputy entered the home, kicked Kaiser so hard his shoe flew off, and arrested him. Sheriff's office officials say Cure violated department arrest policies, and the incident is under investigation.
