    As expressed in a previous release, Sheriff Chad Chronister is committed to safety on our Tampa Bay roadways and waterways. Unfortunately, a member of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office did not live up to the agency's standards.

    On July 6, Sergeant Ryan Harvester was arrested by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) in Citrus County for Boating under the Influence (BUI). He was operating his own vessel on Crystal River.

    "As law enforcement officers, we must hold ourselves to a higher standard than the general public, and there is no exception for a deputy who is driving or boating under the influence," said Sheriff Chad Chronister. "Our Internal Affairs Office is thoroughly investigating this incident."

    Harvester has been employed with HCSO since 2006. He is on administrative leave as an administrative investigation continues.
