A deputy who was videotaped dumping a paralyzed man out of his wheelchair onto a Tampa jailhouse floor has been released from jail after posting bail. Jail records show Charlette Marshall-Jones was booked into the Orient Road jail early Saturday after turning herself in.

It is the same jail where Marshall-Jones worked. She is accused of tipping 32-year-old Brian Sterner out of his wheelchair. A videotape of the incident has been widely circulated.

The Hillsborough County deputy was charged with one count of felony abuse of a disabled person and released after posting $3,500 bail. An attorney for Marshall-Jones listed in jail records did not return a phone message.
