Gregg County Constable On Medical Leave

The Gregg County constable who's facing possible criminal charges for firing his gun inside his home, is on medical leave. In a press release, constable Billy Fort says he is voluntarily taking the leave due to the incident at his home last Thursday.

A law enforcement source tells us Fort thought someone was after him. They say alcohol may have played a part in his dillusion. The case has been sent to the district attorney's office for review.
