FIRST ON 3: Onslow County Deputy may not be out of a job


ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- An Onslow County deputy caught up in a road rage incident in South Carolina may not be out of a job after all.

Craig Culpepper resigned last week amidst the fallout of a video of him cutting off a driver and hitting his brakes, after the other man tailgated him in the fast lane. Culpepper told WWAY he resigned from his job as a deputy after Sheriff Ed Brown offered him to stay on as a deputy in the county jail. He rejected the offer because he did want that job at the jail he said.

Culpepper was on his way back from K-9 training when the incident happened in North Charleston, SC. He paid for the training himself.

Friday night he posted on his Facebook page that he had an opportunity to keep his job. Today, Sheriff Brown told us Culpepper's resignation was effective April 3, but he had offered Culpepper the job in the jail again.

Brown said he's still waiting to hear back from Culpepper on his decision to stay or quit.

Culpepper has not yet returned WWAY's phone calls.
