New Police Chief in Town?

Tyler police Chief Gary Swindle was forced out of his job Friday by a much younger Chief.

Well, not exactly.

15-year old Zephan Cannon served as "Chief for a Day." Zephan says the job comes with a few perks, like sitting at the head of the briefing table, giving orders and getting first pick of the patrol cars.

Fortunately, for Chief Swindle, Zephan is returning to his full time job later this month when he starts high school. Zephan won the title of "Chief for the Day" after placing the highest bid in the "Bid for Kids" auction. All proceeds from that event benefit the Children's Advocacy Center.
