Texas Rangers investigating assault involving a high-ranking Bryan police officer
The Texas Rangers are investigating a high-ranking Bryan police officer who was involved in an alleged assault last weekend at an area fundraising event.
The city did not name the officer because he's not been charged with a crime and has not been arrested, but it was confirmed the officer is a member of command staff for the police agency.
The following news release was sent to KBTX on Tuesday evening regarding the matter:
"On the evening of Saturday, February 8th, Bryan Police Officers were called to 506 West 26th Street regarding a report of alleged assaults.
Arriving officers discovered the reported incident involved a member of the Bryan Police Department’s command staff, who was off-duty and not working at the time.
As a result of the initial investigation, the Bryan Police Department has turned the investigation over to the Texas Rangers. The City of Bryan’s policy is not to comment further on active investigations."
