2 Charlotte County Deputies Fired

  • ccso-badgeSheriff bemoans “Rash of Stupid”
  • Two Deputies relieved of duties for off-duty misconduct
  • The Deputies were 10 and 20-years veterans

sheriff-bill-prummellCharlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell held a difficult press conference yesterday to discuss the firing of 2 veteran Charlotte deputies. Wink news summed it up with this headline: “VIDEO: Charlotte sheriff addresses ‘rash of stupid’ among deputies” Prummell also said, In the last several months, I’ve had several deputies do some really stupid crap

Sgt. Lance Holden was fired after an investigation for an incident at a Grove City bar where he allegedly pushed another man. Deputy Anthony Nardi was fired for allegations of domestic violence and misuse of the DAVID (Florida Driver) database.

The Sheriff wants to stress that the misdeeds of a couple officers do not equate to problems with the rest of the force. Bad cops do occur. Prummell also said, “In the last several months, I’ve had several deputies do some really stupid crap, but ultimately, what we’ve seen time and time again, that our community has stood behind us.” It’s encouraging that Sheriff Prummell is discouraging misbehavior by calling it out, and holding the subpar deputies accountable.
