Come on this way.
Meet Brian Sterner, who broke his neck almost 14 years ago and is a quadriplegic. But watch what happens when Sterner, who can drive and was arrested on a traffic violation, gets to the Orient Road Jail.
This deputy marshal, she looked at me and she didn’t believe that I was a quadriplegic, I guess, and she walked behind me with those handles on the back of that hospital-grade wheelchair and just dumped it straight forward.
Sterner says he tried to roll as he was going down, but hit so hard he thought he had broken two ribs. Then, while he was on the floor, deputies frisked him and tried to get him back into the chair.
I told them how to pick me up and put me back in the chair, but without sensation – like I don’t feel anything from my chest down. So I didn’t know they were broken then, my ribs.
The Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office didn’t know anything about the incident until we showed them their [own] tape, and now an investigation is underway.
This has all come to light today. Therefore this review is very active.
And while we asked for a written report of the incident, the major in charge here at the Orient Road Jail told us there isn’t one, because as far as they are concerned, they didn’t have a problem with, nor cause a problem to any inmate in a wheelchair, but don’t tell that to Brian Sterner.
It’s incredibly degrading. It’s an example of how poorly trained the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office is. You know – If they’re trying to figure out somebody is in a wheelchair or not, there are many other ways you can do it besides dumping somebody on their face.

But it’s something Sterner had to face and now the sheriff’s office will have to face the fact that a deputy at the jail thought that it was appropriate to dump someone out of a wheelchair onto the ground and another deputy appears to think it’s funny.
