We’ve learned that an off-duty Brunswick County Sheriff’s deputy wrecked her brand new 2010 Ford Mustang Wednesday night, reportedly doing 100 mph in a 60 mph speed zone.

Shallotte police say it happened on the US 17 Bypass near NC 130. Investigators say Samantha Lewis was heading south when she lost control of the car, ran off the road into a ditch and rolled some 420 feet. That’s almost a football field and a half!

She was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. The Sheriff’s Office says she is recovering and should be fine. Police say the car was totaled.

The state can revoke your license for driving more than 15 mph over the speed limit if you’re going faster than 55 mph. You can lose your license for 60 Days for speeding and reckless driving. And it can suspend your license for speeding over 75 mph.

It’s also hard to respect someone who doesn’t ever turn the CAPS LOCK off!
Stop “yelling” at everyone and think about what you are saying…Blood Alcohol level??? I haven’t seen anything about alcohol…and do you really think that she would have made it up to 100mph if she was drinking???
I bet you could even make it up to 100mph sober, so get off your armchair and go outside get some fresh air and smell the freedom around you.
Police officers help enforce this freedom.

It doesn’t apply to law enforcement because they are CONSTANTELY speeding past me on the highway, going at least 80, no sirens or lights, just because they can. If , as others have stated, it is not “just because they can”, they why?? I have witnessed so many times, so many law enforcement officers breaking the law it isn’t even funny, but, what are we to do?

If this is true then the highway patrol needs to step in. This is uncalled for and just plain stupid. I know she is in the hospital but I’m glad the media got a hold of it because it does need attention. She and the other deputies could have killed someone. She should lose her license but she won’t because the DA will make a plea and Ingram won’t fire her because of the plea. Watch and see if he will talk to the media about the other deputies involved. It’s an election year….
