CHARLOTTE COUNTY- The Sheriff's Office said that a deputy used "unintentional" excessive force when he put a man accused of domestic violence and resisting without violence in a chokehold.

As a punishment, Deputy First Class Christopher Kearney will receive counseling and complete retraining in the proper use of force and compliance techniques, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff's Office internal affairs report released Friday.
