A St. Johns County Sheriff’s Deputy, Napoleon Staggers, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery after a domestic incident Monday evening.
The spokesperson said there was a disturbance inside of the home, a gun became involved and the off-duty deputy shot the person in “a lower extremity.”
That person’s injuries were described as non-life-threatening. The victim was receiving treatment at a hospital.
The relationship between the deputy and the person who was shot was not officially been released, although we've been told it may have been the deputy's wife.
Details are still being released.
A video that appears to show the arrest of the deputy was posted to facebook last night, but apparently has been taken down today.
