Hockley County Constable Indicted for Stalking
A Hockley County grand jury has indicted Constable Michael Lance Scott for stalking and abuse of official capacity.
KAMC News reports that Scott, 45, was accused of following a 19-year-old to her job, and his behavior made the woman feel threatened.
Scott has been arrested twice before this, once in November for driving while intoxicated, and once in January for family violence.
Officials say Scott was able to post bond to get out of jail while the indictment is pending.
County Attorney Anna Hord said if Scott does not voluntarily resign, she will file a petition to have him removed from office.
