More Video Released on Lampasas S.O. Deputy’s Punching of Teen

Lampasas Sheriff’s Department released the dash cam footage related to the investigation where, on 5/25/17, one of its Deputies, Logan Jones, punched an 18 yr old Copperas Cove teen
about 5 times. The footage can be viewed on numerous internet news sites.

It appeared, based on both a cell phone video taken at the scene by one of the teens and the dash cam footage just released, that the officer could easily be accused of excessive force in the case. There is actually little difference between the two videos of the actual punching the officer did, but the lawmen’s video could indicate that it was completely unnecessary. That said, the matter is under investigation and we await the action of the Co. Attorney. The deputy is currently on paid administrative leave.
