A Suspension in Potter County Sheriff's Office

Officials with the Sheriff's Department say Captain Roger Haney is being suspended for 10 days.

They say it stems from when Captain Haney was in charge of former Potter County Sheriff Mike Shumate. He reportedly allowed Shumate to stay in an office instead of a jail cell.

Captain Haney says the move was a safety issue. And that he was trying to protect the former sheriff until they could secure a place for him, where he wouldn't be around other inmates.

Captain Haney will serve a the suspension two days a week until mid-August.
