BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Brunswick County Sheriff's deputy has been demoted after wrecking his cruiser yesterday while his wife rode with him.

In a statement, Sheriff John Ingram said Sammy Turner has been demoted from captain to lieutenant effective today and been relieved of a portion of his duties. The move comes a day after Turner was involved in a single-car accident on US 74/76 near Leland. His wife was with him in the car. The sheriff says she was an unauthorized passenger in the Sheriff's Office vehicle. No one was hurt.

Ingram has ordered a complete review and revision of policies regarding the use of assigned vehicles as a result of yesterday's incident.
