Anderson County’s Finest

An Anderson County sheriff’s deputy is on administrative leave tonight after his gun was fired during a gun safety class.

The gun fired Wednesday morning after a student grabbed it as the deputy told them how hard it was to take a gun from an officer’s holster, Sheriff David Crenshaw said.

The student’s finger apparently was small enough to get inside the holster and pull the trigger, the sheriff said.

No serious injuries, thankfully.
