Sarasota Herald Tribune Goes Off On ‘Witch Hunt’ After Violent Ex-con Michael S. Basile Is Body Slammed For Kicking Sarasota Sheriff Deputy, Too Bad. At 3 seconds into the video, see click here, the deputy holding onto the arms of the drunk Basile is looking down at the back of Basile’s legs, so is the deputy to the left in the video who is also looking down at the back of Basile’s legs. At 4 seconds into the video Basile makes a move backwards and up as if he is kicking backwards and up. As your see after the take down on the video the deputy first holds down the legs of the drunk, he is a kicker.
SARASOTA – Michael S. Basile wasn’t cooperating with corrections deputies as he was being booked into the Sarasota County jail in March for a disorderly intoxication charge, according to sheriff’s reports. Deputies had to “hold on to Basile by the arms to continue to process him,” court documents state. Then something happened. A fraction of a second later, Deputy Shawn Martin slammed the 54-year-old homeless man to the floor, face-first. Deputies say Basile assaulted Martin: “While being held, Basile kicked backward and struck Deputy Martin in the right leg. Deputy Martin took Basile to the ground to gain compliance,” the report states. The report also states that violent ex-con Michael S. Basile had an injury to his eye and was going to be transported to the hospital, before going Basile was escorted to the intake shower to change into jail attire. As he was taken to the showers Basile continued to kick toward Deputy Traska and Deputy Namors, Basile was taken to the ground, again, to gain compliance, again, during this take-down Deputy Traska was injured, see jail report above.
PARALEGAL MICHAEL BARFIELD FUELS SPECULATION: Sheriff Deputies say Basile assaulted Deputy Shawn Martin: “While being held, Basile kicked backward and struck Deputy Martin in the right leg. Deputy Martin took Basile to the ground to gain compliance,” the report states. A booking video shows the body slam, but did not capture the kick — the alleged assault. “It appears to me that the video refutes that,” said Michael Barfield, a paralegal for Sarasota attorney Andrea Mogensen. “I can’t see where he’s offering any resistance. He was being processed and the officer just took him down suddenly, without any indication of resistance (Michael Barfield’s interpretation is bull-crap).”
MICHAEL BASILE HAS VIOLENT HISTORY, SEE 2011 Herald Tribune article, A machete-swinging Nokomis man threatened to kill his disabled roommate and a woman late Tuesday, later holding the woman against her will until he was subdued, authorities said.
