A Harvey County Sheriff's Deputy has been arrested for alleged criminal threat made via cell phone toward an individual. Levi Herring was taken into custody by the North Newton Police Department Tuesday Morning. Harvey County Sheriff Chad Gay says he will hold his deputies accountable.

I want our community to know that we have a great group of folks that work for them, said Sheriff Gay."  And that this one guy doesn't at all represent what we stand for as a sheriff's office."

Herring has been placed on administrative leave by Harvey County while the investigation is ongoing by North Newton police.
