A Sterling, Va., man has sued a Loudoun County sheriff's deputy, saying the law enforcer caused a brain injury when he hit him in the back of the head while he had his hands in the air.

Carlos Garcia says in the suit that Deputy Terry Daniel hit him so hard that he was knocked unconscious in the incident overnight Nov. 14 and 15, 2009, at a county shopping plaza. The suit was filed in November in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.

The suit says Garcia pleaded guilty to simple battery, a misdemeanor, in the incident, which was recorded by the camera on the deputy's cruiser.

Daniel said Monday that he was trying to find a lawyer but would have no further comment.
