(Schene was fired after striking the girl who had been arrested for
investigation of auto theft)


SEATTLE, Wash. - The assault trial began Tuesday in King County Superior Court for a man accused of beating a 15-year-old girl in a holding cell at the SeaTac City Hall.
     
The teen, a car theft suspect, was taken down violently in November 2008 after she kicked a shoe at Deputy Paul Schene. The incident was caught on video. Schene was fired last September.
     
Prosecutors played the tape in court and said Schene had failed to report slamming the girl into a wall, throwing her to the floor and striking her.
     
A defense lawyer says the girl provoked the attack with her behavior and yelling profanity.
     
Investigators believe that anger about the beating might have motivated Christopher Monfort who is accused of killing a Seattle police officer on Halloween.

King County deputy fired for excessive force

(September 28, 2009)

King County Sheriff Sue Rahr has fired a deputy who was seen on a video beating a teenage girl in a holding cell.

Sheriff's spokesman John Urquhart says Paul Schene was fired for excessive force and making false statements.

Schene met with the sheriff Sept. 9 and she decided to fire him for the department violations.

Schene also faces a fourth-degree assault charge in connection with the incident that took place Nov. 29 in a holding cell at SeaTac City Hall. He has pleaded not guilty.

Video of the incident shows the 15-year-old, who had been arrested for investigation of auto theft, kicking off her shoe at the deputy. He responds by knocking her into a wall and the floor and striking her.
