VIDEO: N.C. Cop Resigns In Road Rage Incident

Onslow County (N.C.) Sheriff's Deputy Craig Culpepper has resigned, after a road-rage incident involving a South Carolina motorist went viral.

Deputy Culpepper was returning from K-9 training in North Charleston, S.C., when he encountered Chad Walton, who was driving a truck with a dashboard-mounted camera.

Walton posted a clip on YouTube showing Deputy Walton cutting him off and brake-checking him. Walton struck the deputy's cruiser and called 911.

Deputy Culpepper told WWAY he was baited by Walton. "I fell for it hook, line and sinker," he said.

Sheriff Ed Brown told Deputy Culpepper he could remain with the agency as a corrections officer, but the deputy declined, reports WCIV.

The Deputy should of pulled over Walton and gave him a ticket for speeding and passing to the right of vehicles on the interstate. But SC does not let LE do their job anywhere in the state. Therefore you got jerks like Walton which think they can get away with breaking the law in front of Officers which are not in their jurisdiciton. Laws need to be changed for the better. Not to protect jerks like Walton.

Mr.walton is at fault. You can see him in he begining of the video and he is on the officers ass. Second you can see him slightly speed up with mr. Culpepper tpas on his breaks. For the last thing the deputy was keeping up with the car next to him

In SC the left lane is for passing! Culpepper was riding along side of another car going UNDER the posted speed limit. If people would obey that law, no one would be violating the law about passing on the right!

I hope this asshole one of these days really does need the police and all units are busy. I just hate assholes like this and it's always just from them editing the real footage, that goes for you to media. They know what the hell they're doing. Anyways good luck to that deputy I hope you fight to get your job back.

All of you are biased asshats. He passed him on the right lane because the cop was holding up traffic. The power hungry cop felt his authority undermined and felt the need to catch up to Mr. Walton and almost hit the car on the right lane cutting Walton off and brake checking him. Sad to see all will deny clear evidence to promote cops even when they're in the wrong.
