FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Allen County Sheriff David Gladieux wants to fire a deputy.

Sheriff Gladiex filed the petition to the merit board to fire officer Johnny Gerardot.

Documents filed with the merit board accuses Gerardot harassed an ex-girlfriend of one of his family members.

On December 28, Gerardot was suspended with pay until the merit board hears the case.
