Man with Down Syndrome beaten, pepper-sprayed by San Diego sheriff's deputies
A developmentally disabled 21-year-old man was hit, forced to the ground, and doused in pepper spray
by California sheriff's deputies this week. Antonio Martinez was taken to a hospital, then detained for possible "obstruction of justice." He weighs 158 pounds, is 4'11," and "didn't respond to commands." Officers mistakenly thought he was involved in a domestic violence incident.
