TALLAHASSEE (AP) - A Florida sheriff's deputy was fired after authorities say he threatened a woman riding along with him into exposing her breasts.
The Tallahassee Democrat reports that the Leon County Sheriff's Office fired Dep. Jarrett Broughton on Saturday after his arrest for aggravated assault.
The office says the woman came forward Thursday.
She told investigators she initially wanted to forget about the incident and worried making a report would jeopardize future job prospects with the sheriff's office.
According to court records, the woman said that Broughton drove to Apalachicola National Forest during a ride-along, grabbed his baton and asked her to expose her breasts. She said she feared he would hit her, so complied.
Broughton's attorney Scott Maddox advised him not to answer any questions, and he turned himself in.
