An Oslow County, NC sheriffs deputy, Craig Culpepper, has been demoted to a jailhouse detention officer following a collision recorded on motorist Chad Walton’s mobile phone. In the video it appears the sheriffs deputy is driving below the posted speed limit, keeping pace with another motorist, thus blocking traffic. When the driver finally gets the opportunity to pass, deputy Culpepper races back up in front of the truck and immediately brake-checks Mr. Walton, causing a minor rear-end collision.
Deputy Craig Culpepper initially resigned after being told about his reassignment, but later rescinded and took the job.
Apologies for the vertical video.
