LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The head of the Fort Myers Beach Coast Guard could be out of a job.

Our partners at the News-Press report that officers under the watch of Chief Warrant Officer Jeffrey Kerner were disrespectful when counseling their subordinates.

Kerner was faulted for not supervising those officers during counseling, and for reportedly failing to follow procedure when another subordinate violated alcohol abuse policies.

Kerner has filed a rebuttal.
