So here’s a cell phone video taken from a Buffalo Wild Wing restaurant in Columbia, S.C. last week which shows an off-duty Richland County Sheriff’s Deputy “arresting” a female soldier.
Off-duty cop Paul Derrick, 49, was drinking at the time of the incident – as was 23-year-old soldier Brittany Bell, the woman he “detained.”
According to Columbia, S.C. police, witnesses say Derrick approached Bell and became angry when she showed “no interest” in him.
Derrick then cuffed Bell, pulled her to her feet, and slammed her head into a metal table – reportedly telling her “this is how Marines deal with soldiers.” Bystanders attempted to intervene on Bell’s behalf – but he then began to berate them.
Bell has been suspended without pay as a result of the incident.
