Assistant D.A. Fired And Arrested On Drug Charges

A Van Zandt county assistant district attorney is fired after he's arrested on drug charges. The charges stem from a five car pile up on highway 64 yesterday morning near Ben Wheeler. A woman and child received minor injuries.

DPS says 53 year old Michael Rogers swerved into oncoming traffic causing the accident. Rogers went into an ambulance for medical treatment. When he left the ambulance paramedics allegedly found drug paraphernalia.

DPS officers say when they searched Rogers' vehicle they found more than 2lbs of a prescription medication. Rogers was with the Van Zandt county D.A.'s office less than a month.
