MANATEE CO., FL -  A fired Sheriff's Deputy says he was let go because he is gay.

Robert Craig was caught up in an undercover steroids investigation that led to him losing his job.

However, he claims it's a mistake, saying he never tried to buy drugs from anyone, and he was only looking to have sex with the man claiming to sell the steroids.

ABC 7 Reporter Trevor Shirley will have more on the story.
