(CHARDON) - Geauga County Sheriff Scott Hildenbrand is banning his deputies from working security at NFL games after the weekend national anthem protests at football games.  In a now-deleted Facebook post, Hildenbrand also said he will not use the remainder of his season tickets.  

"As far as I am concerned almost the entire league disrespected every veteran that ever fought or died for this Country. These protests are not about unity, unity was the other 70,000 fans that stood. I truly believe this is about the Police, Law Enforcement and our government."

The post appeared on the official Geauga County Sheriff's Office page, and also made an announcement that "effective immediately any off duty details at NFL Games are prohibited."
