LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11 has new information on a story we broke back in February. A Dawson County Commissioner has resigned since his arrest.

Dawson County Commissioner Gilbert Tejeda resigned Monday morning around 11 a.m.

Back in February, Tejeda was arrested after allegedly beating his wife. Police say he hit and kicked his wife during a fight and was charged with interference with an emergency communication and assault/family violence. After a warrant was issued, Tejeda turned himself in one week later and then bonded out.

NewsChannel 11 spoke with Dawson County Judge Sam Saleh, who says Tejeda resigned due to personal reasons. He told the judge, "It had been a pleasure to serve him. That there are personal matters he must attend to that will take time, and he will not be able to continue his full time duties as county commissioner."
