Gregg Constable Resigns Under Assault Incident

A Gregg County Constable has resigned, after an episode where he allegedly hit his grand-daughter. The Gregg County District Attorney says Precinct 4 Constable "Robby Cox", vacated his post, to avoid criminal charges. The 13-year old girl told investigators that Cox "punched" her in the face on march 19th, but Cox claims he did not.

Gregg County Commissioners will appoint a new constable to serve, until the next election.
