An Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent has been indicted in Utah for allegedly slamming a man’s face into the floor.
The agent, Jon Martinson Jr., is due to be arraigned in Utah’s federal court the morning of July 29. He was indicted last month with violating the man’s Constitutional rights while acting as an officer.
The alleged victim is only identified by his initials in the indictment, which does not confirm whether he was in the country illegally.
On July 3, 2013, "[Martinson] slammed F.M.P. onto the concrete floor face first," the indictment reads, "willfully depriving him of the rights secured and protected by the Constitution and laws of the United States, to be free from the use of unreasonable force by a law enforcement officer."
