    Always wear your seatbelt! Don’t drink and drive! As soon as it came out that this was a police officer, they stopped reporting that he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Alcohol is also suspected to be a factor.

    He was a good deputy and co-worker. God please guide his family and his work family through this tough time. He will be missed. Rest in peace Deputy Pearce.
