Richmond County deputy suspended for three days

A Richmond County deputy was suspended for three days and put on probation for 12 months for kicking a man in the chin.

Deputy Jason Evans was responding to a call on Feb. 16 when a man became “verbally abusive” and Evans kicked him in the chin, Sheriff Ronnie Strength said.

The man was not hurt badly enough to require medical attention and Strength said Evans has not had discipline issues in the past. Evans has been on the force since 2005.
