He had arrested one subject when he started suffering chest pains. A second deputy who responded to the scene arrived to find Deputy McBride leaning over his patrol car's hood, clutching his chest.
The backup deputy took control of the prisoner and Deputy McBride drove himself to the local hospital where he died a short time later.
Deputy McBride had served with the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office for just over 9 years. He is survived by his wife, four sons, two daughters, and his mother.
