A Santa Rosa County deputy is behind bars on child pornography charges, domestic violence, and aggravated assault.

Investigators say this all started with a citizen complaint.

The arrest affidavit states Jeffrey Perkins, a sergeant with the sheriff's office who worked in Navarre, was placed on paid administrative leave Friday and fired Tuesday.

This after his wife returned from work to him intoxicated and suicidal.

The affidavit goes on to say he pointed a gun at her several times.

Investigators say a warrant was obtained for his cell phone and that's when child pornography was found of girls between the ages of 6 and 14.

Perkins is in jail as he awaits trial.

Perkins had served with the sheriff's office for 9 years.

Perkins' arrest comes less than a week after a Mobile County Corrections Officer who works at Mobile Metro Jail was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography..

36-year-old Matthew Kyle Moody is now behind bars at Mobile Metro Jail.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is due in court January 14th for a preliminary hearing.
