CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – A courtroom attack on an attorney following a suspect’s domestic violence conviction was recorded on video from a body camera worn by a Cuyahoga County deputy.
The attack occurred Tuesday after David Chislton was sentenced to 45 years in prison for setting fire to a Warrensville Heights apartment complex during a domestic dispute in April 2017.
Chislton, who was handcuffed at the time, can be seen striking Attorney Aaron Brockler in the face.
Sixteen families were left homeless after the fire, which was set by Chislton at the Miles Landing apartment complex.
