SARASOTA - A Sarasota County Sheriff's deputy turned in his badge Wednesday. The sheriff's office has announced that deputy Dominic Fornal has resigned.

Formerly viewed as a star of the department's DUI unit, Fornal is currently under investigation for questionable tactics when making arrests.

Fornal came to the department Wednesday with his union representative and was allowed to review the evidence against him. It was at that time he turned in his resignation.

The sheriff's office says its investigation into Fornal should be complete in the next few days.
