BURLESON COUNTY, Tex. (KBTX)- A new release of public records requested by KBTX show Chester Jackson, Jr. is accused of assaulting a public servant during his weekend stay at the Burleson County Jail in April.
According to an offense report released Tuesday by an Austin-based law firm retained to represent Burleson County, Jackson allegedly assaulted a 31-year-old public servant on Sunday, April 21 - the same day he was released and transported to a psychiatric hospital in Austin.
The offense report does not detail the allegation, but it does confirm audio and visual recordings were collected as evidence. The report identifies the public servant as the booking officer involved in Jackson's public intoxication arrest.
In June, Jackson's attorney, U.A. Lewis, told KBTX her client has been indicted by a Burleson County grand jury for felony assault on a public servant but did not have specifics at that time.
Jackson was arrested by a deputy in April on a public intoxication charge following a disturbance outside his Somerville home.
Following his transfer to Austin, Jackson nearly lost his life following an incident at the Cross Creek psychiatric hospital in Austin. He was taken to another hospital and continues to recover today.
Jackson's detention in Burleson County also led to the indictment of a former Caldwell police officer who was caught on camera shoving Jackson into a metal bed and toilet while he was shackled.
