A Hernando County deputy has been fired and a warrant issued for his arrest.
An investigation found that deputy William Martinez had inappropriate contact with a woman while giving her a ride home after a crash. The woman complained to the Hernando Sheriff's Office the next day.
The sheriff terminated Martinez for immoral conduct and not giving truthful testimony. He's also charged with false imprisonment and battery.
