Two Orange County deputies,  Emiliano Silva and Steven Reed, are facing unknown disciplinary measures for leaking information about the death of Bob Saget before his wife, Kelly Rizzo, was notified.

The news of Saget’s death was posted on social media by a relative of one of the deputies before Saget’s family had been notified.

Silva, who responded to the scene, told his brother about Saget’s passing, who then posted the shocking news to Twitter.

Reed was off duty learned of the incident and spread the information to some friends.

The actor and comedian was found dead in an Orlando area hotel room in January following a stand up comedy presentation.

A forensic expert concluded the “Full House” star had passed away of a brain bleed caused by a blunt force trauma possibly hitting his head on the padded head board.

However, it is still not clear how Saget hit his head to cause such a fatal injury.

A toxicology report found no drugs or alcohol present in his bloodstream and Saget was seen smiling and taking photos with fans only hours before his death.
