WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Four Walton County Sheriff's deputies and a communications officer have been fired after a sex scandal. Reports say all five were involved in a series of extra-marital affairs and lied about it.

They say communications Officer Mikaylah Coone was in a relationship with Investigator Aaron Ethridge but had affairs with Sergeant Justin Tisdale and deputies Austin Bailey and Matt Williams between September and November of 2018.

Ethridge was fired for allegedly making threats to two of the deputies after finding out about the affairs.
