Brown Co jail sergeant charged

(KNZA )--A Brown County jail sergeant has been charged in connection with an alleged excessive use of force incident.

Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay announced in a news release Wednesday that his office has charged Brett Hollister with misdemeanor counts of mistreatment of a confined person and battery.

Kagay said Hollister was guarding a Brown County Jail  inmate who was receiving treatment at Topeka's Stormont Vail Hospital on June 7.

He is accused of using his taser on the inmate while his hands and feet were secured to a hospital bed with handcuffs.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation was called in to investigate the matter and the investigation was then turned over to Kagay.

A summons has been issued for Hollister to appear in Shawnee County District Court on December 2.
