A Southern California sheriff’s deputy has been arraigned on allegations he pepper-sprayed a teen’s pizza during a routine traffic stop last year.

KTLA reports Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy Juan Tavera, 30, has been charged with one count of misdemeanor assault or battery by a public officer in connection with the alleged incident.

On September 8, 2012 a different Orange County deputy pulled over a vehicle driven by an unnamed 19-year-old male in Laguna Hills. Tavera arrived at the scene later and saw a pizza in the back seat of the teen’s car. According to prosecutors, Tavera then pepper-sprayed the unwitting young man’s pie.

The alleged victim returned home after the traffic stop and shared the pizza with four of his friends. Everyone who ate the pizza then fell ill. The teen then notified authorities.

If found guilty, Tavera faces up to a year behind bars, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The police are NOT your friends and will NOT protect you. The internet is overflowing with sick, violent LEO’s abusing the citizens and stomping all over the Constitution. False accusations of “Obstruction of a pig, I mean police officer”. Total disregard of a person’s civil rights. It never ends. Only when citizens protect themselves with deadly force will these bags of shit cease their assault on law abiding citizens.
