Howard Co. Sheriff Being Called To Resign Over Alleged Remarks

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ) — The Howard County sheriff is being called on to resign after allegations that he made disparaging remarks to employees, along with ethnic and racial slurs.

After serving for more than ten years, Sheriff James Fitzgerald could be approaching his final days on the job.

The controversy follows the recent investigation by the Howard County Office of Human Rights–obtained by our media partner The Baltimore Sun–which accuses Fitzgerald of berating employees–making disparaging comments about African American deputies, derogatory remarks about women and an anti-Semitic comment about a former county executive.
