An Iberia Parish Sheriff's deputy seen hitting a hand-cuffed man and pushing a teen-age girl has been fired.

The deputy was captured on video using what the department calls “excessive force” to control a crowd after the Sugarcane Festival.

The Sheriff of New Iberia says they are in talks with an outside agency on whether or not to bring criminal charges against the now former deputy.
