He also beat one or more family members in the incident, kicked their small dog, and then got hired and promoted by a different agency. Now the JustUs system is throwing a bone to the mundanes by charging him with a misdemeanor two years later -- probably knowing that the grand jury won't indict him.

A former Harris County deputy constable has been charged with official oppression in a 2011 incident where a man said he was held down and kicked, authorities said.

Jimmy Drummond, formerly with Harris County Precinct 4, was not in custody late Monday, authorities said.

Drummond is accused of taking part in the arrest of David Scherz Jr., 26, on Sept. 10, 2011.

A dash-cam video from one of the patrol cars at the scene shows Scherz being held to the ground.

A constable identified as Drummond could be seen on the video kicking him several times in the rib.

The stop, outside Scherz's home in the 17000 block of Ridge Top Drive, led to his entire family being arrested and jailed.

All charges against Scherz and four relatives were dropped last year by Harris County prosecutors.

They determined there was no probable cause for the arrests.

SNIP

Drummond is now a captain with the Montgomery County Constable Precinct 3 office.

Montgomery County has put the fat abusive bastard on paid leave (Paid Vacation).

Drummond moved to Montgomery County in 2012 after Ryan Gable was elected Precinct 3 constable May 29 of that year. Gable previously worked at the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office. (The good ol boy system aka Texas Policing)

Gable said Drummond has been a “valuable asset,” and has served the citizens of Montgomery County “faithfully.”

However, Gable announced Tuesday that Drummond had been placed on suspension with pay, effective immediately.

“At this time, we would also like to say that Capt. Jimmy Drummond has not been convicted of any type of offense and is innocent until proven guilty,” Gable said in a statement.

However, due to the seriousness of the charge against Drummond, Gable said he wants to be certain that his department is taking the right steps to display that “the public’s safety and concerns are our most important concern.”

Gable said he was unaware of the charge against Drummond until a week ago. (Bullshit. They both worked in Harris County)

UPDATE: Court “drops the charges” Against Officer Drummond

Despite video proof of the beating, a Houston judge has dropped the charges against Officer Drummond, ruling that the statute of limitations has run out on the charge.

The result is that the prosecution against Officer Drumond was basically barred on the night before the trial was set to take place.

Brian Rogers, reporting for Chron, provides the following summary:

“It’s extremely disappointing,” said Randall Kallinen, the attorney who filed the federal lawsuit for the Scherz family. Kallinen blamed prosecutors for not filing the required paperwork on time. “They messed up. I don’t know if it was purposeful, but they messed up.”

State District Judge Denise Collins agreed with Drummond’s attorney, who filed a motion two weeks ago arguing that prosecutors did not indict Drummond before the two-year statute of limitations had run out. Prosecutors filed a criminal complaint, charging Drummond with the Class A misdemeanor, a day before the time limit had expired in 2013. Drummond was indicted three months later.

Collins ruled against prosecutors who argued that the criminal complaint was sufficient to keep the case viable, or “toll” it, until a grand jury could investigate and hand down an indictment.

He said the allegations came to his attention in early September 2013, which did not give prosecutors time to thoroughly present it to a grand jury.
