The appeal's board hearing for a former Manatee County Sheriff's Office detective seeking her job back will continues today.
Tiffany Graves was fired from her job on March 10 for conduct unbecoming a deputy and improper display of a firearm.
The charges stemmed from an encounter Sept. 11 with Deputy Brandon Gard in a church parking lot and in the Village of Cortez.
Gard, who admitted he had a relationship with Graves, testified Monday at the first day of the hearing that he saw her load her gun.
Never miss a local story.
Graves denied loading the gun in front of Gard. She is hoping to be reinstated in her job.
