JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

An Onslow County sheriff's deputy seen in a video in which she yells at a man and arrests him for not putting his cellphone down will receive six weeks of training, the sheriff said Wednesday.

Video of Natalie Barber was uploaded to YouTube Tuesday by the website "Photography is Not a Crime," which promotes the recording of law enforcement. The video shows Barber snatching a cell phone from a man and then handcuffing him.

The video was captured by Carlos Jaramillo, a former United States Marine combat instructor, while Barber was standing on his porch Saturday evening. She had been called to his home after a neighbor complained about his dog.

Jaramillo said he became frustrated because he felt Barber had no legal right to handcuff him if he wasn't under arrest. According to "Photography is Not a Crime." Jaramillo said he started recording the deputy when the "situation escalated."

"I felt threatened, so I wanted to get a record for my safety and that's the reason the cell phone came out," Jaramillo said.

Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown described Barber as a "fine deputy" who had recently completed a 16-week sheriff's office training program.

"I viewed the video recording of the incident in which Deputy Barber handcuffed the complainant in this case," Brown said. "I agree that Deputy Barber was very zealous in her action toward the complainant and she is gratefully sorrowful for that."

Brown acknowledged that Barber raised her voice at Jaramillo and handcuffed him, which he said was "not in order."

"But Deputy Barber never once pushed, snatched, assaulted or showed any other forceful acts of aggression toward the complainant," Brown said.

As a result of her actions, Barber will return to one-on-one supervised training for at least six weeks. Brown said the training "will be focused solely on handling Civil Disputes, Laws of Arrest, and the Scope of Authority for Law Enforcement."

Brown said he provided Jaramillo with a copy of his action plan and said he plans to meet with him in person.
