On Saturday, Marion County interim Sheriff Emery Gainey suspended two MCSO Majors.

According to a press release, Major Don Maines, who is over the Bureau of Professional Standards, and Major Tommy Bibb, who is over the Bureau of Special Investigations, have been placed on paid administrative leave.

The suspension came just one day after the arrest of Marion County Sheriff Chris Blair.

Officials said that, at this time, no active MCSO Internal Affairs investigation is being conducted in relation to these suspensions.

The length of the suspension is unknown.

Sheriff Gainey said he knows these are tough decisions during very difficult times, but is dedicated to the task of providing a stable and professional law enforcement agency for the citizens of Marion County.
