CLINTON, NC (WRAL) - A NC sheriff's deputy who disparaged people involved in a weekend shooting lost his job on Tuesday.

According to the Sampson County Sheriff's Office, deputies trying to break up several fighting at the A Country Club on Sunday suffered cuts and vehicle damage. Three people were shot, one person was stabbed and two people were beaten.

In response to a Facebook post that the fight participants "won’t be getting their deposit back,” Deputy Charles Patrick Foreman replied, “It don’t matter, it was paid for on EBT.”

EBT stands for electronic benefit transfer and is used to issue food stamps.
