DAILYKENN.com -- An illegal alien has been arrested for assaulting a Knoxville, Tenn. police officer.

Ernesto Delgadilo Rodriguez, 31, initially sued the police claiming civil rights violations. Police, however, claim Rodriguez initiated the incident that left his face fractured.

The incident occurred in 2014. The arrest of Rodriguez was reported Sept. 2, 2015.

Ernesto Delgadilo Rodriguez, a 31-year-old undocumented immigrant, has been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting officers during an arrest on July 9, 2014. The encounter fractured Rodriguez's face and required treatment at UT Medical Center.

An unarmed man at the center of a video-recorded beating by Knoxville police during a July 2014 arrest has now been charged with crimes for that initial encounter with officers.

Ernesto Delgadilo Rodriguez, a 31-year-old undocumented immigrant, has been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting officers during an arrest on July 9, 2014. The encounter fractured Rodriguez's face and required treatment at UT Medical Center.

One year after the encounter, Rodriguez sued the arresting officers and the City of Knoxville in federal court for civil rights violations. Rodriguez was unarmed during the arrest and claimed he was beaten so severely he required a breathing tube after suffering facial trauma and an orbital fracture.

Dashcam video of the arrest was released to the media on August 11, 2015. It shows Rodriguez being held by the first responding officer with one hand handcuffed, but repeatedly refuses to provide his other hand. Backup officers arrive and are shown pounding on Rodriguez to force him to submit to being restrained.

The federal lawsuit against KPD states Rodriguez would not give his hands because the handcuffs were too small and were hurting him. It also claims there was a language barrier, but Rodriguez can be heard speaking English in dashcam videos.

Rodriguez's lawsuit claims the beating caused his injuries, but KPD said the blows shown in the video followed protocol and were delivered to Rodriguez's shoulder-blade. KPD said the facial injuries occurred when Rodriguez was tackled and his face hit the street.

When the dashcam videos were released in early-August, law enforcement told 10News the initial charges against Rodriguez for resisting arrest and assault were dropped in November 2014 because it was believed the Mexican man was about to be deported. He was not. However, KPD said the deportation case is still pending with U.S. Immigration Services in Memphis.

There was no mention in August of the dropped charges being resurrected against Rodriguez, but indictment documents show a pending criminal charge was already approved at the time. The grand jury met and indicted Rodriguez on June 24, 2015.

Rodriguez's attorney, Amy B. Johnson, told WBIR 10News on Tuesday that her client was unaware of new charges and turned himself over to authorities on August 21, 2015.

"As soon as he learned of the pending indictment, he self-reported," said Johnson, declining any further comment.
