Detention deputy arrested for battery on a juvenile inmate

A Pinellas County deputy was arrested Monday for striking a 15-year-old inmate last summer and lying about his motives, marking the fifth firing of a county deputy in six months. Joel De Los Reyes, 51, hit the teenage inmate for "mouthing off," Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told reporters at a press conference Monday. Another deputy, Adrian Nenu, was suspended for not reporting his colleague's use of excessive force. [Pinellas County Sheriff's Office]
