SARASOTA, Fla. — A police officer seen kicking a handcuffed man on Sarasota County Jail surveillance video will not face battery charges, the state attorney's office announced Wednesday.

Prosecutors declined to file charges against Sarasota officer Christopher Childers, who was put on administrative leave after the video showed him kicking Juan G. Perez, 21, on June 26.
