Deke Brucker is facing charges that include felony battery or domestic battery by strangulation, battery causing physical injury, and also tampering. The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office arrested him on September 29 and posted bail the following day, according to St. Johns County court records.
On September 29, a Thursday, Brucker purportedly desired to have sex with his girl that night, however, she declined. When she stated absolutely not, it’s reported that Brucker punched her face, placed his hands over her neck, then snatched her mobile phone as a way of stopping her from contacting 911, WJXT-TV reports.
When Brucker purportedly placed his hand onto his partner’s throat, it “restricted her breathing and made her feel as though she was going to die,” WTLV-TV indicted.
Brucker was employed as a deputy by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, he resigned at the time he was taken to jail. He’s apparently the 12th individual from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office to get apprehended and jailed in 2022.
The woman apparently informed detectives Brucker had injured her previously, yet this had been the very first time she talked to the authorities about it.
