A Pegram 18-year-old has filed a lawsuit against three Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office deputies claiming they used excessive force against him while being held at the Cheatham County Jail, the Tennessean reports. Jordan Elias Norris suffered more than 40 pairs of Taser burns, the lawsuit alleges, during an incident that was captured on surveillance video. The three deputies, Mark Bryant, Josh Marriott and Jeff Key, have been placed on administrative leave in response. Norris’s lawyer told The Washington Post that the incident amounts to “torture.”
