FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — A fallen Forsyth County deputy was laid to rest Tuesday.
The funeral service for Deputy Auston Smith Reudelhuber was held at Rich Fork Baptist Church. Hundreds of law enforcement officials were in attendance to pay their respects.
The procession following the service stopped traffic for several minutes on Business 85 in Davidson County. Some onlookers even got out of their cars and could be seen putting their hands over their hearts as a show of respect.

He died from his injuries at a local hospital.
