Man dies after being restrained by Texas deputy, her husband

CBS affiliate KHOU-TV reports that the wife of beating victim Johnny Hernandez said her husband was drunk when the family stopped at a Houston Denny's May 28 after celebrating his beloved Chivas soccer team's victory. A confrontation between the deputy's husband and Hernandez ensued that resulted in Hernandez losing his life in the hospital three days later, authorities said. "This is what led to the death", he said.

Multiple witnesses have provided video to news outlets showing Terry Thompson, the husband of Harris County Sheriff's deputy, on top of Hernandez, appearing to have him in a chokehold. Thompson has been placed on administrative leave. An attorney for Hernandez's family says a doctor reported he died of strangulation, according to The attorney for Hernandez's widow says this move is not allowed by some police agencies.

According to the Hernandez family's attorney, the deeply disturbing video is confirmation that Harris County deputies actively tried to cover up the incident. "She had the obligation to stop her husband from killing John Hernandez".

Some say this video proves that someone should be charged with the death of Hernandez. The faces have been blurred and we're not using the names since no charges have been filed at his time. "They certainly don't show the beginning where Mr. Hernandez attacked my client".

An outcry of justice could be heard in the streets in front of the Harris County Courthouse Wednesday while friends, family and supporters called for action in the choking death of John Hernandez.

The deputy's husband had arrived at the Denny's with his two young daughters to meet his wife. "He was really angry".

The man involved in the beating death of John Hernandez has refused to talk with the DA's office and so has his wife, a Harris County Sheriff's deputy.

Investigators said the deputy's husband drove up to the restaurant at about 11:40 p.m. Sunday in the 17700 block of the Crosby Freeway. "It's a very sad video because you are watching a man basically being killed". "He was kicking his legs in a helpless fashion, and you could hear him gargling just begging to stop".

The family's attorney said the video showed a crime of at least manslaughter being committed. "I concur", Carroll said to KHOU on Thursday.

Hernandez was taken to the hospital and was taken off life support three days later.

"We feel like the Sheriff and the District Attorney should take a second look and look at this video because I think it's the basis for an indictment", said Augiustine Pineda with LULAC.

However, he is the subject of the sheriff's office investigation, according to his lawyer Scot Courtney.

The Texas Rangers are providing oversight on the sheriff's office's investigation to ensure it is handled properly and thoroughly.
