VSA is saddened to learn of this line of duty death from the Charles City County Sheriff’s Office. On June 9, 2024, around 12:30pm, a Charles City County Deputy was monitoring traffic at the intersection of John Tyler Memorial Highway (Rt. 5) and Wayside Road (Rt. 607), when an individual on a moped approached their vehicle. As the subject approached the deputy’s vehicle, the moped fell onto the vehicle. The deputy noticed blood on the subject’s person and asked if he were ok. The subject stated that people were after him and trying to kill him. He repeatedly said that and the deputy then place him into the rear of his vehicle and called EMS for further observation. Once Charles City County Fire/EMS arrived, they transferred the subject to the rear of the ambulance. After several minutes, the deputy returned to the rear of the ambulance and that is when the subject become combative towards the deputy and struck him. After the deputy was struck, a struggled ensued between the subject against law enforcement and EMS. As a result of the struggle, the deputy suffered a medical emergency. As a result of that medical emergency, the deputy was rushed to MCV/New Kent Medical Center were he succumbed to his medical emergency.
