SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Newly released, enhanced surveillance footage from the brutal beating of a man in a San Francisco alley by Alameda County sheriff’s deputies late last year has revealed new evidence against the deputies.

KPIX-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1rBYJlk ) Thursday that San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi has released video showing a deputy twirling something shiny - believed to be the victim’s gold chain - around in his hand. The deputies stand accused of stealing the chain to give to a homeless man to keep him quiet about the beating.

Two sheriff’s deputies were caught on surveillance video striking Stanislav Petrov more than 40 times with steel batons after a foot chase into a dark alley last November. Three deputies are on paid administrative leave in connection with the incident.

None of the deputies has been charged with any crimes.

Petrov was seriously injured.
