On January 15, 2016, Deputies Adams and Layrisson were investigating a stolen vehicle. Banks claims that the deputies knocked on his door, pulled him from his doorway, and dragged him down the steps into the grass.
Banks was issued a summons for theft. The charges were dropped when it turned out that someone had replaced the license plate on Banks' truck with a stolen one.
Banks filed a lawsuit against the deputies, claiming use of excessive force.
