Video shows White Army drill sergeant Jonathan Pentland, 42, shoving and shouting at a Black man. The incident occurred in Richland County, South Carolina. South Carolina authorities have charged a Pentland with misdemeanor assault. “The fact that he put his hands on somebody” “That’s assault and battery when you place your hands on someone, and he did,” “The video showed that he did, and that’s the evidence that we have that he was charged with,” Sheriff Leon Lott says.
