According to KTVU, a public defender is asking that two deputies be charged after being caught on video beating a suspect with batons following a lengthy high speed chase.

Police say that 28-year-old Stanislav Petrov sped off after deputies recognized the car he was driving as stolen. In an attempt to escape, Petrov allegedly rammed two patrol cars, injuring one deputy, before leading the deputies on a 100 mph chase that ended when Petrov hit a parked car, at which point he took off on foot. Upon searching the stolen car, the deputies found a loaded gun and drugs for sale.

Alameda County Public Defender Brendon Woods alleges that the deputies “viciously attacked a man who appeared to be surrendering. They beat him with their batons even though he was not resisting. This is clearly excessive force.”

Actor Alec Baldwin, no stranger to the use of force when it comes to the paparazzi, was disgusted by the videotape.
