Charges Will Not Be Filed Against A Former Love County Deputy Accused Of Beating A Blind Veteran Earlier This Year

LOVE COUNTY -- Charges will not be filed against a former Love County deputy accused of beating a blind veteran earlier this year. 


Pontotoc county D-A Chris Ross says he declined to file charges against Johnny Denney for a scuffle at a home in January. 


65-year old John Nipp told Kten back several months ago, that  Denney hit him, knocking him backwards over a couch and onto the floor where he says the punches continued. 


But District attorney Ross says he doesn't believe the injuries the man suffered were from punches but says he believes they were caused from the man falling over the couch.  


Ross was assigned to the case after  the Love county D-A asked that an outside agency investigate the claims Denney quit his job the night of the incident.
