The victim, Damon Taylor reported the assault to Crockett Police last week, but arrests records show he's had prior dealings with the deputy he alleges assaulted him.
The Houston County Jail gave us Taylor's arrest records, which shows he has two prior arrests for breaking into someone's home, for stealing a vehicle, and providing a fake name.
According to Taylor's family, some of those charges were dropped.
Attempts to contact Taylor for comment were not successful.
But Billy Groves, who is speaking for Taylor says someone from the FBI is investigating.
