Deputy charged in domestic violence

September 22, 2008

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that Alan Brooks, 24, a deputy and a son-in-law of Sheriff Kevin Beary, has been relieved of duty because of a domestic-violence charge against him in Lake County.

Beary in a statement offered few specifics but said his daughter and son-in-law are "well" and he asked that their privacy be respected. "When something like this hits so close to home it takes the life right out of you," Beary said. Brooks, a deputy for two years, was arrested and charged with domestic battery Saturday by the Mount Dora Police Department, a sheriff's spokesman said.
