UPDATE: DA reviewing TBI's investigation into alleged body-cavity search by Hamilton County deputies
UPDATE: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has finished its investigation into an alleged body-cavity search by Hamilton County sheriff's deputies and turned its findings over to the district attorney's office for review.
"We are beginning a detailed review of the independent investigative factual findings and how these findings relate to current state law defining criminal behavior," according to Bruce Garner, a spokesman from the Hamilton County District Attorney's office.
On July 12, Hamilton County District Attorney Neal Pinkston asked the TBI to investigate the incident after dash camera footage of a traffic stop that was released the same day.
In the video, two white deputies, Daniel Wilkey and Bobby Brewer, are seen kicking, punching and stripping the pants off James Myron Mitchell, a 41-year-old black man, on July 10. The video shows them performing an apparent body-cavity search on Mitchell, who was a passenger in a vehicle, on the side of the road in Soddy-Daisy. He and the driver, Latisha Menifee, were handcuffed.
