Two officers from the Orange County Police Department in Florida have been punished for their behavior over the death of actor Bob Saget. The two shared information about the ‘Full House’ actor’s death, breaking that news even before his wife could be officially notified.
According to The New York Post, Emiliano Silva told his brother that Saget had died. The brother then shared that information on Twitter. Steven Reed was not at work himself on January 9, but heard from his colleagues about the death of the 65-year-old ‘Full House’ star and told several friends about the death of Bob Saget.Save 80% on select product(s) with promo code 80VNV3OX on Amazon.com
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office was soon bombarded with phone calls by the media, while Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo waited for information about her husband, who she couldn’t reach. Authorities concluded from investigations that Saget most likely fell in his hotel room and fataly bumped his head against an object.
The actor did not immediately realize the consequences of his fall and was probably taking a nap to recover from the show he had just given. Saget never woke up and, according to authorities, eventually died of a brain haemorrhage caused by his fall.
It was not disclosed what kind of punishment the officers received.
