Gregg County Constable May Face Criminal Charges

A Gregg County constable may be facing criminal charges after a bizarre incident in which he allegedly discharged his weapon in his own home. A law enforcement source tells us Thursday night Longview police were called to the home of constable Billy Fort because of reports of shots being fired inside the home.

Our sources tell us Fort thought someone was after him.  They say alcohol may have played a part in his dillusion.   Fort was taken to the hospital but our sources say he did not receive any injuries from the shooting.   Officers tell us he could face charges of dangerous conduct.
