In response to a use-of-force allegation made by an attorney representing the family of a student at Blanche Ely High School, Sheriff Gregory Tony held a news conference Monday afternoon.
The incident in question took place on February 21, while the student attended the school. The Broward Sheriff’s Office first learned of the family’s complaint following their media announcement this morning. The family never filed a complaint with BSO. Upon learning of the allegations, we conducted a prompt cursory review of the evidence in the case.
