The Associated Press
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- A sheriff's deputy pleaded not guilty Wednesday to attempted voluntary manslaughter in the videotaped shooting of an unarmed airman who had just returned from duty in Iraq.
Deputy Ivory J. Webb, 45, shot Senior Airman Elio Carrion three times after a car chase Jan. 29. He could get up to 18 1/2 years in prison.
A videotape shot by a bystander shows Carrion, 21, lying on the ground beside the car as the deputy points a gun at him. After what sounds like an order to "Get up," Carrion begins to rise and is shot in the chest, shoulder and thigh.
Carrion was hospitalized for several days.
Webb left the court without comment. He has until Friday to post $100,000 bail.
