New constable allows friend to fire gun into air

SAN BENITO, Texas (AP) - A newly elected constable was questioned by
sheriff's deputies after allowing a friend to fire his county-issued handgun
into the air at a party.

The constable, elected earlier this month, was at a friend's house late
Saturday when Cameron County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of
shots fired.

The constable and the homeowner appeared to be drunk and the friend
admitted to firing the gun, according to the incident report. Neither man
was charged.

I think in Texas "Constable" is more of a legitamate LE position and not the joke that it is here in Mass.

I remember waaay back, when COPS was in Texas for the first time, there was an episode that had a segment which featured Constables.
