DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas -- Hays County Sheriff Allen Bridges has died, one month after being re-elected.
The Hays County Sheriff Department says the 62-year-old Bridges collapsed at his Dripping Springs home and was pronounced dead at an Austin hospital early Saturday. His cause of death is unknown.
Bridge was appointed by county commissioners in September 2005 after former Sheriff Don Montague resigned. He ran unopposed for the remainder of Montague's term and was re-elected last month.
