GRAYSON COUNTY – A former Tom Bean police chief appeared in court Wednesday.

It's the first time we've seen Michael Webster in Grayson County since he was arrested five months ago.

Webster is charged with stealing and selling guns that had been collected as evidence by the Tom Bean police department.

He was the city's police chief for six years before resigning in late 2012.

Webster is also charged with assaulting a public servant. "Which was alleged by a fellow officer that he had used the taser on one of his officers that worked for him," District Attorney Joe Brown said.

Texas Rangers arrested Webster at his Dalhart home in the Texas panhandle in August. He posted bond.

Wednesday, Webster's attorney asked a judge to change his bond conditions so he would only have to return to Grayson County to check in with his bond officer once a month, not twice.

"And, there's some confusion in the language of the bond conditions about where he can go and where he can't go and they're asking that that be clarified," Brown explained. He said both requests are common.

A judge granted Webster's request, and clarified he can return to the city of Tom Bean where he still owns a home.

However, the judge said he is not allowed to have contact with any Tom Bean city official.

Webster's trial date is scheduled for April 7.
