Byrd took to the media to explain why he fired the deputies. First, he said they were misusing county computers, then he said they were campaigning on the clock. He also told a Myrtle Beach TV station that the deputies were "going through some of the offices, printing out reports and things that they should not have been and different things like that."
Hall says both those statements are untrue.
"I can't speak for the other guys, that's their business, but no, not with me," Hall said.
Hall thinks the email we obtained through a source 3 months ago might explain why he lost his job.
The email appears to be from Sheriff Byrd's Gmail account to Kristan Jeffords, his assistant at the sheriff's office.
It reads, "I stand here tonight longing for your touch. I can't have you and I can't live without you. Our day will come. I want you. I need you. I love you. Signed, Wayne."
