JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

New details are expected Wednesday concerning a Jefferson Parish brutality complaint.

As FOX 8 first reported last month, a teen from Reserve says a sheriff's deputy attacked him inside a Lakeside Shopping Center parking garage. Cell phone video recorded the incident as the deputy takes the teen into custody.

WARNING: Video does contain graphic content and language.

Brady Becker, 17, is recovering from a fractured jaw and two black eyes after being arrested by Detective Nicholas Breaux on February 13.

“I feel like he assaulted me. He violated my rights,” Becker said. Becker claims the deputy did not identify himself as an officer when he approached a group of teens in the parking lot.

Becker said he decided to step in when he heard Breaux call his friend names.

"I was just trying to figure out why he was getting in his face and all my friends faces. That's when he started to beat me up,” Becker said.

However, reports from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office differ. The reports claim Detective Nicholas Breaux was patrolling the garage when he heard Becker say, "f--- the cops." Breaux said he walked up to the group and identified himself as a police officer, and Becker pushed him. Breaux claims that Becker and others began throwing punches before a video recording was started.

Becker's family filed a complaint against Breaux. Now the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office and the FBI are investigating the excessive use of force claim.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand has not yet commented on the incident. Normand is expected to give an update during a Wednesday afternoon news conference. The press conference is scheduled for 1 p.m.

    Solar panels lighting up New Orleans East

    Solar energy is blanketing one neighborhood even after state tax credits disappeared. In New Orleans East at least 2,150 homes have solar energy and several homeowners are landing the panels at little or no initial cost. At Mary Queen of Vietnam, the church installed a large solar system including a hot water heater panel. “One single panel like that we don't have to use any other energy from the roof to make the water heater work and so it's a big saving to us,” Anthon...
