  Original Published: 9/5/2013The Richland County Sheriff's Office says no criminal charges will be filed against a deputy accused of using excessive force. A Mansfield man claims Deputy Jeff Frazier forced him to the floor, slapped him and handcuffed him while responding to a domestic dispute call on August 18th. The man was not arrested. Captain Eric Bosko says the Sheriff's Office conducted a thorough criminal investigation, and handed that information over to the city law director's office. The law director determined the evidence did not warrant criminal charges. Frazier is still under investigation for possible violation of standard operating procedures. If he's found to have violated departmental policies, he will face a disciplinary hearing.
