    The herald sun has the correct story, he WAS an Orange County Deputy at the time of his arrest, as a result of the arrest the Sheriff has since fired him (damage control)

    If you or I had done this the bond would be a whole lot more.

    Is he a "former deputy" because of this arrest? If not, it should not be part of the story.

    So why didn't WRAL publish his BAC level like they do all other offenders?
