SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Sonoma County man who had criminal charges dismissed after video emerged showing correctional deputies beating him and shocking him with a stun gun more than 20 times has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/1DRov93) that Esa Wroth's lawsuit contends deputies used excessive force when they knocked the handcuffed man to the ground and began punching and kicking him.

The 28-year-old says his civil rights were violated in the Jan. 2, 2013, incident that happened as he was being booked into the jail on drunken-driving charges.

Prosecutors eventually dismissed resisting and assault charges against Wroth in exchange for his plea to an alcohol-related reckless driving charge.

The suit names Sheriff Steve Frietas as well as five correctional officers.

Sheriff's officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.
