HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- A Madison County Sheriff's Deputy is under fire again and this time, he's being sued.
Back on May 15 2011, Deputy Dennis Daversa was accused of kicking in an apartment door at Huntsville Place Apartments, threatening two women and holding them against their will.
Now they are suing him, the apartment complex, and its management.
At the time, Daversa was charged with trespassing and burglary.
The lawsuit claims Daversa, as a side job, acted as security for Huntsville Place Apartments while he lived there.
The victims claim that night in May, he stormed into their apartment and put them in handcuffs.
What's not clear in the lawsuit is why Daversa entered the apartment in the first place.
The victims claim he told them to hand over their identifications, threatened to assault them and put them in handcuffs. They also claim he smelled of alcohol at the time.
