It has now been two-and-a-half months -- 76 days as of Sunday -- since Bryan Police Chief Ty Morrow went on administrative leave.
The chief was involved in a domestic dispute in late November in which officers had to be called to his home. Morrow placed himself on leave so an investigation could be conducted.
Since then, the state Attorney General's office has been looking into the incident and its handling, and the city and its citizens are awaiting the results.
Morrow is on paid leave at this point. His yearly salary is reportedly $115,000. Two-and-a-half months pay is around $24,000.
Assistant Chief Peter Scheets is acting as chief at this time.
