Kempner Police Chief Arrested For Failure To Report Student Allegations
Been a lot of drama going around in the small Lampasas County town of Kempner in the last year from disputes between the mayor and city staffers that lead to resignations last year to a city council member facing possible theft charges over allegedly stolen American Flags according to KXXV.
What's in the water down over there in that town?
Now, you have this story from our news partners at News 10.
They are reporting that the police chief of Kempner, Chief Charles Edward Rodriguez, was arrested on Tuesday on a warrant stemming from an investigation of allegations he failed to report sexual assault and harassment complaints by a student while serving as a campus officer at Texas A&M University-Central Texas in Killeen.
The investigation started on March 11 when Killeen police received information that Rodriguez, while serving as chief of the campus police force at A&M-Central Texas, failed to report Title IX violations as required by law after a student reported instances of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence or stalking involving a former university employee.
Rodriguez turned himself in Tuesday at the Killeen City Jail, police said and his bond was set at $2,000. The university issued a statement Tuesday afternoon in which it said it can’t comment on personnel issues or active criminal investigations.
