The Lexington Police Department has arrested a former Lexington County deputy accused of disorderly conduct at an apartment complex.
Giovanni Michael Vaccaro, 29, was charged with disorderly conduct Friday morning, according to a Lexington Police Department incident report.
“When I became aware of Mr. Vaccaro’s actions which resulted in his arrest, I started the process to terminate his employment,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Deputies are held to a higher standard and Mr. Vaccaro has fallen short of that.”
Koon terminated Vaccaro Friday.
Vaccaro, a recent graduate of the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center.
