FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - A North Texas sheriff’s deputy has lost his job over rants he posted on Facebook against his boss and two other county employees.

A disciplinary letter obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram shows Richard “Bo” Aldridge accused Sheriff Dee Anderson of drinking and driving in his county vehicle. Anderson denied the allegation categorically.

The letter also showed Aldridge made derogatory comments against one of his opponents in his campaign for the Precinct 1 constable’s job, which Aldridge lost. He also made derogatory comments against County Commissioner J.D. Johnson.

The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department’s Disciplinary Review board recommended his dismissal, which Anderson agreed with. Aldridge didn’t appeal the decision with the county’s Civil Service Commission.
