Who is Jonathan Pentland? South Carolina Army drill sergeant charged in viral altercation with Black man

The events that preceded the video were not recorded, and Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott declined to give details, although he noted that the Black man in the video had been involved in other incidents in the area in recent days.

“There were some other things that occurred – that really doesn’t justify the actions of [Pentland],” Lott said during a Wednesday news conference.
