On July 27, many citizens witnessed a deputy drive his patrol car into a retention ditch located in front of First United Methodist Church, located at 8851 W. Bradshaw St., Homosassa.

In an email, Linda Linthicum, Community Relations Specialist with the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office stated that a deputy had a “medical episode” which resulted in the deputy driving into the ditch.

Linthicum, said, “Fortunately, the Deputy did not sustain any injuries but as a precautionary measure was transported for medical evaluation.”

A witness told Citrus Gazette that the deputy exited the vehicle and appeared to be fine.
