Sheriff's Deputy Demoted for Helping Animals

A deputy sheriff in North Carolina was demoted for getting involved in animal abuse cases without involving the local animal control officers.
Sergeant Michael Lewis was demoted after he helped rescue malnourished horses in the Hampstead area.

Monday, Sheriff Smith cited two other incidents where he claims Lewis took over animal abuse cases without informing animal control.
Seems a bit harsh. Were the cases valid, or was he abusing his authority?
