A Sheriff's deputy in Knox County, Tennessee has been fired after he was caught on camera allegedly choking a university student Saturday night. A freelance photographer was on hand to watch the student fall to his knees after the officer's grip rendered him unconscious.

He was arrested immediately. The case was turned over to the Knox County Attorney General's Office to determine any further action.

Jared Dodson (the student) apparently resisted arrest while he was being arrested.
