A veteran high ranking lawmen has left his job in Washington County, and no one is saying much about it.
Brian Hardison was chief deputy for the Washington County Sheriff's Office until Thursday. We don't know if Hardison left the Sheriff's Office on his own or was fired. WITN has left numerous phone messages with Sheriff James Ross since Thursday afternoon, but none of those have been returned.
County Manager David Peoples confirms that Hardison no longer works for the Sheriff's Office, but says he doesn't know the circumstances behind his departure.
