LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Last week the granddaughter of El Paso's Mayor was wanted on a misdemeanor marijuana charge in Lubbock.  The case raised questions of preferential treatment. 

According to the El Paso Times, Amanda Ward, 21, was arrested Thursday in El Paso.  The Mayor, John Cook, told the El Paso Times that his granddaughter's case was expedited as a courtesy by the El Paso County jail.  Jail officials have since denied any preferential treatment.
