Ex-Fla. Deputy Hospitalized After Dorner Comparison

May 02, 2013  | 

A former Broward Sheriff's Office jail deputy was hospitalized under the Baker Act on Tuesday after he posted a YouTube video accusing Sheriff Scott Israel of turning his back on him, and saying he didn't want to be "the next Christopher Dorner," the fired LAPD cop who went on a revenge-fueled shooting spree in February.

The Baker Act is a provision of Florida law allowing someone to be held at a designated institution for up to 72 hours if they are believed to pose a threat to themself or someone else.

"Please, somebody, intervene in this situation," former deputy Raymond Hicks says in the video, his voice choked with emotion, " because I don't know, time is running out ... I pray and hope that somebody, somebody take a look at this video, and understand that I've been through so much, I don't know how much more I can take. I don't want to be the next Christopher Dorner. So I'm praying and asking someone to get involved. Please. God bless you."
