The cop who allegedly took and shared photos of Kobe Bryant’s body after his fatal helicopter crash also stands accused of kneeling on an inmate’s head for 3 minutes.
Video of the alleged inmate abuse is now at the center of the legal battle involving Bryant’s widow Vanessa’s lawsuit against LA County.
Vanessa Bryant claims in her suit that Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Douglas Johnson helped violate the privacy of her late husband and daughter Gianna when county workers shared pictures of their remains.
The NBA legend and Gianna, 13, died Jan. 26, 2020, in a helicopter crash along with six other passengers and a pilot.
Johnson is now facing more scrutiny over the release of video leaked to Knock LA, which shows him kneeling on the head of inmate Enzo Escalate, who was handcuffed at the time.
