A reserve Jackson County deputy appeared in court on Friday after a road rage incident in Campbleton, Florida.

The auxiliary deputy was turned in by an off duty Nashville police officer.

On a section of Highway 231 in Campbleton Thursday morning, an off duty Nashville police officer was heading home after a Florida family vacation.

That’s when Reserve Jackson County Deputy Samuel Efurd III allegedly rear-ended Nashville Officer Charles Vance.

Efurd turned onto Highway 2, heading toward Graceville where he finally pulled over in a ditch.

Nashville Officer Vance approached Efurd's vehicle with his weapon drawn and ordered Efurd to get on the ground.

Reserve Deputy Efurd is only a volunteer deputy, but Sheriff McDaniel is still embarrassed about the incident.

He expects all his deputies to act with respect and restraint.

Luckily, no one was hurt and a dangerous driver is now off the roads.

Efurd faces charges of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a crash, and reckless driving.
