She wasn't one of the deputy that was drinking. It was two male deputy that was drinking. Try to understand what you read.

WTVR way to go if this was any other citizen you would not try to destroy their image before the investigation was complete. Even if this deputy was charged with DUI in July of 09 this does not have anything to do with this incident. This continues to show your stations anti-police view. Before I thought it was strictly Mark Holmeburg but now I am begining to believe it is your stations policy. You shouyld be ashamed

ACTUALLY IT WAS HER - TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU READ!

RICHMOND - Richmond Sheriff C.T. Woody, Jr. says two of his deputies were arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence.

The first arrest happened early Sunday morning. The Hanover County Sheriff's office arrested Sergeant Clarence Lewis Jefferson after he was pulled over and suspected of drinking and driving.

Jefferson is a 24-year veteran of the Richmond Sheriff's department. He's scheduled to appear in Hanover General District Court July 21 at 8:30 a.m.

Then, in a separate case, Deputy Caroline Green was arrest by the Richmond Police Department after she was involved in a crash in the 1600 block of West Broad Street. Woody says at the time of her arrest, she was on extended leave of absence.

Green has been with the Sheriff's department for two years and was in court Tuesday morning.

Sheriff's C.T. Woody did not appear on camera, but he did send over a written statement to CBS 6 saying:

"Although these incidents occurred while Sergeant Jefferson and Deputy Green were off-duty, the alleged behavior displayed by the deputies is not the type of behavior we expect from our employees. Both deputies are innocent until proven guilty."

Sergeant Jefferson has been placed in a non-public contact position pending the outcome of his charge in court.

Deputy Green will be placed in a non-public contact position upon her return to work. Our Internal Affairs Unit will continue to monitor both criminal cases. The results of their breath or blood tests are not available from the Richmond City Sheriff's Office.

Yeah it was her and she was off duty in July and it has nothing to do with her death. Notice what the story said she was not working and there is nothing that has pointed to alcohol being involved

Dep. Green was a great officer and person. I was truly upset when I heard of this accident and her passing. I worked with Dep. Green years ago at the Sheriff's Office. As a matter of fact, she trained me when I first went to the Sheriff's office back in the 90's. She was caring and very detailed. Green will truly be missed. God spead!!!

Deputy Green was an awesome individual. She was very pleasant and very kind. She always had a smile and a hug for me whenever I saw her. I will truly miss her smiling face and was deeply saddened when informed of her death. Praying for her family that they can find peace in this tragic situation.

Caroline and I were native New Yorker's, lived in the same apartments when I moved from N.Y. and we also worked together briefly at Dept of Social Services, before her working for the Sheriffs Department. My condolences go out to her family, co-workers and many friends.

To "beware" - that is a stupid comment to make for an incident that happened about 2 yrs. ago. It has no where in the recent incident of her condition when she had the accident - hence wait for the autopsy results! By her hitting a hospital building, why not consider that just maybe she was having a medical issue and was attempting to seek help when she crashed.

Maybe you should understand what you read:

Lets try again, re read the bottom and then realizes YOU were incorrect, this is what happens when you drink and drive, and they should know better.

If you read the ORIGINAL article it does absolutely say she was drinking and driving... again, re read:

It does not matter if she had a drink or not atleast she did not kill any bystanders. But to Caroline's family I had the pleasure of working with her at the Sheriff's office. God needed another angel in his field of flowers she was it. In such surroundings she always maintained her dignity why can't people just remember she was loved and God has called her home let her rest in peace. She was a kind and gentle person she will be missed I will continue to pray for her and her family.
