LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Former Lee County deputy John Eaton was in court for his arraignment this morning.

The 7 1/2-year veteran was arrested last month and charged with illegal drug possession. Eaton reportedly resigned after investigators say they found marijuana, steroids and drug equipment in his home.

Eaton was most recently patrolling in Bonita Springs before his arrest.

Eaton will be back in court June 18th.
