In Montana, Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edward has been asked by a state ethics panel to surrender all of his coroner and peace officer certifications.
The request (or order) comes after an incident involving the sheriff and his girlfriend at a law enforcement conference.
The county commissioners can not fire the sheriff but they can yank his certifications.
Edward says he was involved in a loud disturbance with his girlfriend at the conference.
But the sheriff denies the allegations of assault and says he never loaded a gun during the incident.
Edward did say his behavior that night was “not the best.”
