Officer Fired After Being Caught Choking University of Tennessee Student On Camera

A Tennessee Sherriff’s deputy was fired after the Daily Mail published images of him choking a 21-year-old college student until he passes out.  Officer Frank Phillips arrived at a University of Tennessee party, with several officers, after the party spread into the streets. Officers attempted to break the party up while students allegedly threw beer bottles at their cars. Jared Dotson was handcuffed after the officers spotted him drinking alcohol on the streets.  Witnesses report that he calmly allowed police to arrest him,  but the police report says that he was resisting the arrest. Freelance photographer John Messner took photos which capture Phillips choking the student, while already in cuffs, until he falls to the ground.
