Two San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies have been charged with misdemeanors after one allegedly assaulted a man and the other falsely impersonated another deputy, according to the criminal complaint.

Deputy Michael Parham, 40, of Rancho Cucamonga, is charged with one count of assault under the color of authority for the May 20 beating of Mario Madrigal. Deputy Shadia Adham, 33, of Yucaipa, is charged with impersonating another female sheriff's deputy, identified in the complaint only as "L. Mitchell," at the time of the alleged crime.

Officials at the Sheriff's Department and the District Attorney's Office would not divulge any specifics on the incident, including where it occurred and why.

Parham is on paid administrative leave while the criminal charges are pending, but Adham remains on active patrol duty, sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller said.

Both deputies work out of the sheriff's central station in San Bernardino, and the department is conducting an administrative investigation, Miller said.


Both deputies are scheduled for an arraignment in San Bernardino Superior Court on Oct. 15, court records show.
