Christian Chamness county corrective action plan
Christian Chamness was suspended 25 days for writing a false report and unreasonable force, county records show. The discipline stemmed from a 2007 incident in which Chamness pepper-sprayed an elderly man in the face and arrested him, claiming he the man had blocked the path of deputies and then advanced on Chamness. The account was contradicted by a security recording that showed Chamness pepper-spraying the 73-year-old man, who is not seen to be resisting deputies.
