LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A former Lee County deputy, charged with growing marijuana at his home, could get those charges dropped.

Peter Urbanski and Shannon Clancey were arrested in May on drug charges. Sheriff Mike Scott immediately fired Urbanski.

Today, a Lee County judge placed Urbanski in a diversion program. If he successfully completes that, all charges against him will be dropped.
