Pitt County Deputy Facing Charges

A Pitt County deputy has been arrested for supplying wine to a 20-year-old.

Authorities say Deputy Amanda Tyndall was charged with supplying alcohol to an underage person.

SBI spokeswoman Noelle Talley says Tyndall allegedly supplied wine to someone under 21 years old. She says the SBI was asked to investigate Tyndall on June 8th by the district attorney.

Tyndall is a DARE officer with the department and is on the state DARE board of directors.

Sheriff Mac Manning says all of Tyndall's DARE classes have been canceled this fall, and that no action will be taken against her at this time.

According to a sheriff's office citizen's complaint form, Tyndall was at Tie Breakers bar on June 5th with her step-son's girlfriend. An ALE officer says he saw a minor drinking out of a wine glass. The officer cited the 20-year-old her for underage drinking. In the complaint form, the ALE agent said Tyndall leaned over to her right to speak with someone and at that time, the underage woman reached over Tynddall's shoulder, picked up the wine glass and drank from it. In the complaint, witnesses told deputies that Tyndall turned away when the ALE agent came up to the table, and that she left the business.

Pitt County says Tyndall has been a deputy since October 2005 and makes $39,435 a year.

Tyndall is the second person connected to the sheriff's office to face arrest this year.

In July former Deputy Michelle Pollard was indicted after an SBI investigation into whether she tipped off a the target of a drug investigation.

    NO ONE SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHERS ACTIONS!! THE GIRLFRIEND OF THE STEP-SON SHOULD BE THE ONE IN TROUBLE. SHE IS OVER AGE OF 18 AND IS CONSIDERED AN ADULT IN OUR SOCIETY, SHE ALSO SHOULD MAKE A PUBLIC STATEMENT THAT AMANDA DID NOTHING WRONG, EXCEPT ALLOW HERSELF TO BE CLOSE TO THIS GIRL. AMANDA, I DO NOT KNOW YOU BUT WANT YOU TO KNOW MANY PRAYERS ARE BEING SAID FOR YOU AND STAY STRONG (GODS' SHOULDER IS THERE FOR YOU)!!!!

    Charge her? For what? Setting her drink down to talk to someone? Its not her fault the girl took her glass and drank out of it when she wasnt looking.Why does this bar allow underage people in anyway? The girl was already drunk when she got to the bar..the girl should be the one in trouble bc she knows shes not 21 and she had no business even being there in the first place.Amanda didnt do anything wrong and this has been blown way out of proportion.

    I say charger her. If a parent left out a beer and their child drank from it, the parent would be charged and arrested.

    for all of you bashing amanda tyndall...she is my SISTER and I know her..you people dont.She would never give a minor alcohol..its not her fault that gitl drank out of Amandas glass without her knowing.The girl is 20 years old she knows shes not old enought to be drinking and she just wants to put the blame on someone else.So all of the people talking trash about my sister get a life because you don't know her..find something better to do than talking about someone you don't even know!!

    And why is Tyndall in trouble? This 20 year old woman is the one that reached over and took a sip from her glass. Even if Tyndall handed it to her, she still has a mind of her own. If they need someone to blame, then blame the underage girl. Seems to me by your story, Tyndall had nothing to do with it. Tyndall, keep your head up.

    to Hand of Faith- Pray really hard and maybe God will improve your spelling. Until then, please don't comment. It's too painful to read.

    Chris, you must still be in HS, since when does being cool, fun and cute have anything to do with breaking the law? There are lots of cool and very fun criminals out there, not saying she is one, just saying one has nothing to do with the other, personally I think this is a complete waste of money, that could be used to catch real bad guys..
