CCSO deputy arrested
The Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office has released the following statement:
On Jan. 7, 2023, a Chesterfield County Deputy conducted a traffic stop in the Jefferson area of Chesterfield County. The deputy requested the South Carolina Highway Patrol because it appeared that the driver, off-duty Deputy Derrick J. McQueen, was under the influence of alcohol. It was determined by the SCHP that he was impaired and McQueen was arrested. He was taken to the jail for charges related to this incident. No one was injured and no property was damaged.
Sheriff Cambo Streater does not condone these actions from his deputies. “We hold officers to a higher standard, and this officer failed to meet those standards. Therefore, McQueen has been terminated from his position as a deputy with Chesterfield County.”
