What has Sergeant Jonathan Pentland been accused of?

Sergeant Jonathan Pentland was charged with third-degree assault on Wednesday, April 14, after being filmed accosting and shoving a black man in a South Carolina neighborhood, telling him: "You came to the wrong neighborhood motherf****r".

The video, shows a man, identified as Pentland, 42, demanding that the man leave the neighborhood before threatening him with physical violence.

"You're in the wrong neighborhood", Pentland, standing on a sidewalk in Columbia, can be heard saying to the other man before using an expletive.

"I ain't playing with you," he added. "I'm about to show you what I can do."

The recording begins with Pentland asking the man what he's doing in the area. He says he was simply walking and not bothering anyone.

Throughout the video, Pentland continuously demands that the other man leave the neighborhood, getting in his face and, at one point, pushing the man, who almost falls to the ground.

"Lets go, walk away," Pentland says in the clip. "I'm about to do something to you. You better start walking right now."

At the end of the video, a woman who Pentland identifies as his wife – Cassie Pentland – can be heard telling the other man that he had picked a fight with some random young lady in the neighborhood, a claim the man then denies.

If convicted, Pentland – who is listed as detained in the Richland County jail – faces up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.
