DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida sheriff’s deputy has resigned after body camera video apparently showed him taking money from a man’s wallet while arresting him on suspicion of DUI.

John Braman stepped down Monday after body cam video of the Aug. 1 incident clearly showed the deputy going through what appears to be a wallet and tossing something out. The wallet is put in an evidence pouch and a $100 bill is visible nearby.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood says they’ve had several complaints recently about Braman stealing money from the wallets of people he arrested. Chitwood calls Braman a “thieving idiot.”

Attorney Flem Whited tells the Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/2jQqfroz) the video surfaced in a case involving one of his clients. He notified investigators.

A phone number wasn’t available for Braman.
