Jody Wayne Holland, 44, formerly of Arcadia, filed a federal lawsuit Friday against the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office and four DCSO deputies in connection with injuries Holland allegedly received while being detained in the DeSoto County Jail. He is reportedly seeking $3 million in damages.
Named in the lawsuit are Dale Scott, the deputy who initially arrested Holland on April 21, 2013, on charges of domestic abuse; Steven Rizza, the former deputy who allegedly beat Holland on May 25; former deputies Vincent Carlucci and Ashley Cross, who allegedly witnessed Holland being beaten and did nothing to stop it; and Ray Kugler, the former DeSoto County Jail captain who allegedly failed to transport Holland to the hospital for treatment after the injuries occurred.
