CAUGHT ON CAMERA FIRST ON 3: Driver says Onslow Co. deputy caused crash in SC

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WWAY) -- A South Carolina man takes to social media to vent his frustration with an Onslow County Sheriff's deputy.

The driver, Chad Walton, began rolling video last night right before he says the deputy cut him off and caused a crash. He later posted the video to YouTube.

Walton came up on the Onslow County Deputy going eastbound on I-526 in North Charleston, SC. Walton says the deputy was holding up traffic by going 50 mph in the fast line, when the speed limit was 60.

To get around the deputy, Walton says he moved in to the right lane before pulling back into the fast lane. Still recording video, Walton caught the deputy passing on his right, then cutting back in front. That's when the video shows the deputy slamming on his brakes, which caused Walton to rear-end the cruiser.

"That video doesn't lie," Walton told WWAY by phone. "You can see how it happened. You can see the speedometer in the video, where you can see I was going 60 miles an hour."

After the crash, Walton says the deputy, driving car No. 145 that was marked as a K-9 unit, did not pull over, so Walton called 911. Walton says North Charleston Police responded and cited the deputy for being at fault. The officer was not ticketed.

So far the Onslow County Sheriff's has not returned calls for comment. North Charleston Police also have not responded to our requests for more information.

This crash may have been

This crash may have been prevented if the driver would have been paying attention to driving and not trying to garner hits on you tube. Put down your phone and drive please.

This is tantamount to "Well,

This is tantamount to "Well, she shouldn't have dressed like that, then." Stupid, small reasoning from a stupid, small person.

Sure thing...

officer....

pfft!!

The article says the officer

The article says the officer was cited as at fault, but not ticketed. You know you would have gone to jail, had you done that. We do not have equal protection under the law as long as these criminals do not pay the price for their actions.

SO let me get this straight.

SO let me get this straight. He is getting away with potentially ruining this guy's life and other innocent people around him? Officer was not ticketed. When are they going to be begin being held responsible for their abuses of power?

This sheriff needs to be

This sheriff needs to be held accountable. This could have been deadly. Thank the lord this guy got it on video.

If this is true

rest assured Ed Brown will have someone out to the woodshed before he is terminated,

"Walton says North

"Walton says North Charleston Police responded and cited the deputy for being at fault. The officer was not ticketed."
