King County deputy charged with fourth-degree assault on teen girl By MIKE BARBER P-I REPORTER Following an investigation initiated by his own department, a 31-year-old King County Sheriff's deputy was charged Thursday with fourth-degree assault, accused of physically assaulting a 15-year-old girl in a holding cell in November. Authorities say the incident was caught on camera. King County prosecutors charged Deputy Paul Schene with the crime, a gross misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail. King County Senior Deputy Prosecutor Gary Ernsdorff requested bail be set at $10,000. Schene, an eight-year veteran, was placed on paid administrative leave in early December after the Sheriff's Office assigned a detective from a work site other than his to investigate. Schene is slated to be arraigned Feb. 26 at the King County Courthouse. The P-I is not using the girl's name because she is a minor. Sgt. John Urquhart, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, said with the criminal investigation completed, the department will launch an internal investigation. Schene was last in the news in 2006 after he fatally shot a mentally ill man during a struggle after a traffic stop on Interstate 5. It was the second officer-involved shooting in his career.

I live near Seattle. This story is about 2 years old.
Actually, a crazy dude got so upset over this video that he went out and shot at two cops in a cop car (near where I went to high school).
One cop died and the other was injured.
