The attorney for the family of John Hernandez, a man allegedly beaten and killed by the husband of a sheriff’s office deputy, says a new cellphone video has surfaced of the incident.

Attorney Randall Kallinen will hold a press conference Monday and release the video’s via DVD at the office of attorney Jack Carroll at 1419 Franklin.

Kallinen alleges that the Harris County Sheriff’s Office has been trying to conceal evidence surrounding the case, keeping it out of the public’s eye.

On May 28, Terry Thompson, 41, and his children pulled into a Denny’s parking lot in the 17700 block of the Crosby Freeway in east Harris County, according to authorities.

Thompson, later identified as the husband of a sheriff’s deputy, allegedly saw 24-year-old John Hernandez urinating in public.

When Thompson reportedly confronted Hernandez, a fight followed, authorities said.

Authorities said the off-duty deputy, who arrived in a separate vehicle to meet her family at the restaurant, called for assistance from the sheriff’s office and medical services.

The deputy then helped her husband restrain Hernandez, but the altercation ended with a motionless Hernandez being rushed to the LBJ hospital, authorities said.

Hernandez died from his injuries late Wednesday.
