A stunning turn of events near DeLand, Florida; where a Deputy from the Volusia County Sheriff's Office who normally is tasked with enforcing the law has now been arrested for violating it.
Volusia County Sheriff's Deputies say that their dispatch received a call to the family home in DeLand with reports of a man <i>”beating his son within an inch of his life”</i>, according to reports.
When authorities arrived they found 50-year-old Sergeant Robert Rahn of the Volusia County Sheriff's Office and his sixteen year old son crying.
Rahn’s son claims that his father pushed him down onto a couch, punched him in the face repeatedly and then began choking him.
The son also claims his father cupped his hands over his nose and mouth to cut off oxygen, effectively causing him to become unconscious.
Deputies had no choice but to subdue and arrest one of their own, and Rahn was transported to the Volusia County Jail for one count of domestic battery by strangulation and one count of child abuse without great harm.
