Deputy Bryant was killed by a drunk driver who was driving with his head lights turned off. Deputy Bryant was responding to backup another deputy who was pursuing a domestic assault suspect. The drunk driver had just left a local bar after being involved in an altercation and had turned off his lights after seeing the first deputy's patrol car, fearing he would be arrested.

The drunk driver struck Deputy Bryan's vehicle head-on and both men were killed. Toxicology reports showed that the driver had a BAC of .10 and had smoked marijuana shortly before the incident.

Deputy Bryant had served with the agency for almost 4 years and had served in law enforcement for 10 years. He was survived by his wife, two daughters, parents, and brother.
