FIRST ON 3: Onslow Co. deputy resigns after traffic incident in SC
ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — An Onslow County Sheriff’s deputy has resigned after video surfaced online of his involvement in a traffic accident in South Carolina.
The video shows Dep. Craig Culpepper cutting in front of a driver on I-526 in North Charleston, SC, Monday evening and pumping his brakes, causing the vehicle behind him to hit his cruiser. North Charleston Police cited Culpepper for being responsible for the accident.
Culpepper told WWAY the driver of the other vehicle, Chad Walton, baited him into the incident.
“I fell for it hook, line and sinker,” Culpepper said.
Law enforcement sources in South Carolina tell WWAY they have had frequent encounters with Walton, who they say often drives around recording video of law enforcement officers trying to catch them in bad situations.
