Tom Bean Police Chief On Leave

Posted:

TOM BEAN, TX -- The police chief in a small Grayson County town is at the center of an internal investigation.

Tom Bean Mayor Sherry Howard says council members decided to place Police Chief Michael Webster on paid administrative leave effective on Monday.

Webster came to Tom Bean from the Bells Police Department back in 2005.

Howard says they have named a reserve officer as interim chief and that residents should not worry when it comes to their safety.

"We have several paid employees and several reserve officers in place and they're performing just like they've done in the past," Howard says.

There's no word on the nature of the investigation, but Howard says she expects that it will be wrapped up some time next week.
