Jackson Mistreatment Allegations

Sheriff seeking release of probe into Jackson mistreatment allegations

A California sheriff has asked a judge to release results of a probe into Michael Jackson's charges of being "manhandled" during his arrest last year. But the judge in the case is denying the request -- and has ordered those records sealed. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Anderson requested a state investigation after Jackson said he was treated roughly by deputies at the Santa Barbara County Jail. He claimed he was locked in a restroom smeared with feces for 45 minutes. He also said his shoulder was dislocated. TV news cameras, however, showed Jackson waving to fans with both arms as he exited the jail. Jackson is accused of committing a lewd act upon a child, conspiring to commit child abduction and false imprisonment, among other charges. He has pleaded innocent, and is free on three (m) million dollars bail.
