Sep 11, 2014 10:59 AM by Megan McMann

Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey will announce his findings from the investigation into a sheriff's deputy who was caught on camera kicking a suspect. The incident happened last month in South Oroville when deputy Sam Burnett was on patrol when he tried to place the suspect, Terry Collins under arrest. Collins reportedly became aggressive and a fight ensued, and Deputy Burnett was recorded by a bystander kicking Collins near the head when he was in sitting on the ground. Deputy Burnett has been on administrative leave while the District Attorney's Office and the Sheriff's Office conducted separate investigations. Ramsey will present those findings at 1:30 this afternoon at the Board of Supervisors Chambers.
