Outside Agency To Conduct Chief Morrow Investigation

An outside law enforcement agency and prosecutor will oversee the criminal investigation into a family violence call Sunday at Bryan Police Chief Ty Morrow's home, officials said Wednesday.

Authorities are not sure who will conduct the investigation or what prosecutor will review the case, according to Brazos County Attorney Rod Anderson. Anderson hopes to have a better idea on Monday.

Initially, the investigation was going to be conducted by a Bryan police officer and the Brazos County Sheriff's Department, with the findings presented to Anderson's office.

"With our ties to the police department, we feel it's the best way to handle the investigation for everyone involved," Anderson said. "We want to make sure the best job is done."

Morrow called authorities at 12:47 a.m. Sunday, saying that he and his wife had a physical argument and he handcuffed her, according to police reports.

Chief Morrow is on administrative leave pending the completion of the criminal investigation.

An internal investigation is being conducted by the Bryan Police Department and will be reviewed by the City Manager David Watkins.
