DURHAM- A sheriff's deputy who flipped his cruiser into a ditch Wednesday while chasing a breaking-and-entering suspect was following department chase procedure, officials say.
Jason Brooks, 25, a Durham deputy for two years, was pursuing a primer-gray Chevrolet Monte Carlo south on Midland Terrace about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. The driver of the Monte Carlo was suspected of breaking and entering on nearby Thompson Road.
