David Beddingfiel Under Grand Jury Investigation

A former Smith County Sheriff's Deputy is once again being investigated by a grand jury. This time David Beddingfield is under criminal investigation for allegedly using a shot gun while working for a bail bondsman to capture a drug suspect.

Beddingfield, a private investigator at the time, would not have been allowed to use fire arms in his duties.

Beddingfield was recently released from jail after serving time for violating his probation on drug charges.
