Hernando County deputy fired, Sheriff calls actions 'shocking, embarrassing'

A Hernando County deputy has been fired after an Internal Affairs investigation revealed he violated several policies.

According to HCSO, Deputy Jeffrey Lamondra, a 10-year veteran of the agency, was terminated Monday based on failing to properly help during a call for service involving an elderly person.

Two concerned citizens called HCSO on February 12 to report a 60-year-old man wondering shirtless and carrying a catheter bag along Mariner Boulevard in Spring Hill.

Former Deputy Lamondra responded to the call for service, but Sheriff Al Nienhuis says failed to properly investigate and put that Patsy Horan's life at risk.

"It shocks my conscious to hear that there is a deputy out there that did something like this," said Sheriff Nienhuis.

Instead of calling for an ambulance or rendering first aid, Lamondra called Horan a cab, despite Horan telling the two responding deputies that he was in need of help.

The cab took Horan 40 miles away to an old address, where he no longer lived, in Zephyrhills.
