The case of a former sheriff's deputy was continued Monday in Hyde County.
Mike Gaskill was fired for allegedly tasering two people.
The indictment says the former deputy willingly and feloniously restrained Roland Cooper on April 8th, 2008 and assaulted him by repeatedly using a taser.
The second case happened on June 20th, 2008. That indictment says Tyree Bond was assaulted when the deputy used a taser on him for 24 seconds.
A court clerk says Gaskill appeared in court, but the case was continued until January 4th.
