Asheville Police officer Anthony Sorangelo was recently suspended and charged with assault for using excessive force back on February 11, 2020. The Asheville Police Department has not released many details about the incident. They say that Sorangelo responded to a report of an intoxicated man on the ground, used force, and whatever that force was, it was bad enough for the APD to do their own laundry. They called in the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) and after they submitted their findings to the district attorney Sorangelo was charged with assault.
The video has yet to be released.
