FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – Delucca Rolle, the Tamarac teenager who garnered national headlines after cellphone video of his rough arrest went viral, took the stand and shared his side of the story, as two of the arresting Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies face charges over the incident.
BSO Deputies Gregory Lacerra and Christopher Krickovich have asked a judge to dismiss their misdemeanor charges for their actions during Rolle’s April 2019 arrest, citing Florida’s “stand your ground” law.
Rolle described what he was feeling during the tense takedown, after he had been pepper-sprayed.
“I don’t know what I was thinking. I just thought, ‘My eyes are burning.’ That’s all I had my mind on,” he said.
