WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A New Hanover County Sheriff's deputy has resigned after being charged with driving while impaired. The sheriff's office says Dep. Brandon Matthew Jordan was off duty when he was stopped for speeding on NC 42 in Johnston County Friday night by the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
The 26-year-old had been with the sheriff's office since 2006. He was on administrative leave pending an internal investigation, but quit this morning before the investigation could be finished.
