WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputy has quit after being pulled over for drunk driving.

The Sheriff’s Office says Highway Patrol stopped Lt. Lawrence Miller for DWI over the Labor Day weekend. Troopers stopped Miller during a checkpoint at the Snows Cut Bridge.

Miller has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office before an internal investigation concluded.

“I continue to stand firm on my position concerning alcohol related incidents,” Sheriff Ed McMahon said in a statement of his zero-tolerance policy.

Miller was a 19-year veteran with the Sheriff’s Office. He is at least the fourth Sheriff’s Office employee to quit or be fired after an arrest since May 2010.

If he did in fact commit these charges… ( it has yet to be proven) he will have his day in court

Through COUNTY EMPLOYMENT RECORDS you can verify that Mr. Miller has NOT worked for NHCSD for 19 years consecutively, he actually came to work for NHCSD in 2002 after having worked with the Brunswick County Sheriffs Department, after having ORIGINALLY worked for the NHCSD.His total years of Law Enforcement may possibly be 19 years, but he has switched back and forth from NHCSD to BCSD then back to NHCSD.
