    A third deputy disciplined in connection with the beating of a suspected car thief in San Francisco is no longer with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, officials said Friday.

    San Francisco prosecutors have filed charges against two deputies who they say wielded batons and used excessive force in the incident captured on video last fall. A third deputy, Shawn Osborne, was placed on administrative leave.

    Osborne is "no longer with the department," Sgt. JD Nelson said.

    Witnesses claim Osborne took the victim's necklace and gave it to them, apparently to buy their silence.

    The alleged assault came at the end of a high-speed pursuit involving Stanislav Petrov, a suspected car thief, that stretched across the Bay Bridge in November.

    The Alameda County Sheriff's Office is not elaborating on Osborne's departure.
