King County prosecutors will not file criminal charges against a sheriff's deputy who slammed a man into a wall so hard after a foot chase that he was left in a coma.
"It's a tragic incident, but there is no legal basis for a criminal charge," said Dan Donohoe, spokesman for Prosecutor Dan Satterberg,
Christopher Harris, 29, of Edmonds, was placed on life support after the incident. His current condition was not immediately known.
A witness incorrectly identified Harris to deputies as a suspect in a bar brawl May 10 in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. When deputies approached him, Harris fled, according to Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. John Urquhart.
The deputies chased Harris. As Harris slowed to a walk, deputy Matthew Paul, 26, slammed Harris into a concrete wall outside of a Belltown theater.

So if i where to attack an innocent man and put him in a coma would they have the same view?
