Former Charleston deputy reaches deal on charge

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC -

A former Charleston County sheriff's deputy has reached an agreement to avoid a conviction on a charge of using excessive force during a traffic stop last year.
    
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported the agreement calls for Christopher Davis to completed 50 hours of community service and provide a magistrate with a medical report.
    
A charge of third-degree assault and battery will be dismissed if Davis complies with the agreement.
    
Davis was arrested earlier this year after an investigation by the State Law Enforcement Division determined that he roughed up 19-year-old Devante Antwan Pittman during a traffic stop Nov. 11.
    
Davis resigned in April as a result of both a SLED investigation and the internal investigation conducted by the Charleston County Sheriff's Office Office of Professional Standards.

The county paid Pittman $250,000 to settle a civil suit filed against the sheriff's office and the deputy.
