Sheriff refuses to charge a case of unlicensed carry, forced to resign

Hit and Run reports on a sheriff in Florida who was arrested for declining to charge someone for carrying a concealed firearm in his vehicle (without a license). What's interesting isn't so much the original case, which seems entirely trivial, but the fact that this case got a sheriff arrested when he refused to resign. Compare with what it takes to get even an ordinary police officer arrested or even just fired for violence against an innocent citizen?
