RELEASE: VSP Investigating Incident Leading to the Death of Charles City County Deputy
 

On June 9, 2024 around 12:30pm, a Charles City County deputy was monitoring traffic at the intersection of John Tyler Memorial Highway (Rt. 5) and Wayside Road (Rt. 607) when an individual on a moped approached his vehicle. As the subject approached the deputy's vehicle, the moped fell onto the vehicle. The deputy noticed blood on the subject's person and asked if they were ok. The subject repeatedly stated that people were after him and trying to kill him.

The deputy placed the subject into the rear of his vehicle and called EMS for further observation. Once Charles City County Fire/EMS arrived, they transferred the subject to the rear of the ambulance. After several minutes, the deputy returned to the rear of the ambulance and that is when the subject became combative towards the deputy and struck him. A struggle ensued between the subject and law enforcement and EMS.

As a result of the struggle, the deputy suffered a medical emergency. He was rushed to MCV/New Kent Medical Center were he ultimately succumbed from his medical emergency. The subject was transported to an area hospital for examination/observation. 

Sgt. Floyd H. Miles, Jr. was born and raised in Charles City County, a county he truly loved. Upon graduating Charles City County High School, he enlisted in the United States Army. Sgt. Miles returned to serve the Charles City County Sheriff's Office proudly for 16 years. He was supervisor of Patrol and Animal Control. He had a true, genuine passion not only for the residents of Charles City County, but all residents of the Commonwealth of Virginia. He constantly excelled in his field, most recently graduating from Animal Control School.

Sgt. Miles is survived by his mother and father, his wife, his three stepsons, his brothers, his sister, and his grandson.

Virginia State Police BCI is handling the investigation.
