Deer Gets Splattered, Deputy Loses His Job

Man, we’d love to see the in-car dash camera video for this one.

A Craven County, N.C., sheriff’s deputy hit a deer while driving at a speed of 117 mph in his cruiser en route to a vehicle crash site. The deputy was not injured, according to this report in the Havelock News, but his vehicle sustained more than $7,000 in damage.

The deputy, Andrew Byron Callaway, was terminated from his position. The sheriff’s department has a zero tolerance policy for excessive speed, Sheriff’s Capt. Joe Heckman told the newspaper. The speed limit on the road Callaway was on is 55 mph.
