NAPLES, FL - A 22-year-old Fort Myers man is planning to file a civil suit against the Collier County Sheriff's Office claiming he was brutally beaten by deputies during an arrest.
Mateo Falconi led deputies on a high speed chase for about six miles through Collier County in October.
The chase came to an end at the 7000 block of Preserve Lane in Naples.
Falconi says when he surrendered he put his hands up in the air, he says Deputy Robert Lewis then punched him in the face and tackled him to the ground-- putting a gun to his head and threatening to kill him.
He says Lewis and other deputies continued to beat and taze him despite the fact that he had surrendered.
Falconi shared a portion of the dash cam video--he says it is proof that deputies used unnecessary force against him.
