Sylvester- Thomas Evans says Sylvester Police officer Beth Pundavela and Worth County deputies Leonard Davis,II and Larry Whisnet used excessive force during his arrest last month.

He says Davis threw him to the ground while Pundavela drove her knees into his neck and upper back. Evans was charged with obstruction when he refused to let officers search his mother's house.

"My muscles were sprained, and then they said my nerves were damaged.Then they said my shoulder had some pulled muscles and tendons in it," Evans says.

"I talked to the chief and the sheriff on Friday and I received the letter on Friday also. Their accounts of the incident reports do not substantiate what I got in the letter from the Prison and Jail Project.

City Manager Danny Lucas says there will be no investigation unless Evans files a formal complaint. Pundavela was one of three officers who arrested Herman Jackson in February. He later died in their custody.
