Scott Arner

Sergeant Scott Arner, a member of the Jasper County Sheriff's Department dive team, drowned while performing an investigation in an ice-covered lake.

The small lake which is spring-fed from a mine shaft, is 30 to 40-feet deep in most spots, and has been used often as a location for criminals to abandon stolen cars. After Sergeant Arner's body was recovered, he was flown to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Sergeant Arner was a U.S. Navy veteran and had served with the Jasper County Sheriff's Department for 13 years.

Sarge....there hasn't been a day since you passed away that I haven't regretted arresting that woman that gave that BS info that got you into the water.

Thanks for the qualification tips.... I'll never shoot above 95% and it's ok.
