Deputy James Fisher, a school resource officer at the high school, was terminated by Monroe County Sheriff’s Office for giving a false report. Sheriff Tommy Jones said security video showed Fisher opening up the school and helping students carry items in and later leaving while students were still in the building. The video then shows Fisher returning after receiving a call that the prank had gotten out of hand.
