Deputy Fired For Talking To Media After Being Shot Will Get His Job Back

Deputy James Lane was considered a hero after an incident that left him with a gunshot wound to the face. But later on, when he began to question the circumstances leading to his injury, he was marked a liar and then fired from his job at the sheriff's department. Now, he hopes to be back on the force soon.

Two years ago, Lane and 14 other deputies were serving warrants for a man wanted for murder.Once inside the home, the suspect reached into his pocket and another deputy fired his weapon. Amid the gunfire, Deputy Lane was shot in the face. He believes he was shot by the bullet of a fellow officer.

In an interview with Fox45, Lane described the event as terrifying saying, "Only thing in my thoughts was I'm going to die."
