On Tuesday a judge increased bond to $3 million for one of the 12 Tulia drug defendants. All were freed last week by retired state District Judge Ron Chapman as their drug convictions from a 1999 raid draw more scrutiny.
Christopher Eugene Jackson was arrested four days after his release when he allegedly punched a Pampa police officer. Jackson is charged with assault of a police officer, evading arrest and public intoxication. He's in the Gray County Jail on $5,000 bond.
After hearing of the arrest, the judge ordered Jackson's $70,000 personal recognizance bonds in the Tulia case revoked. He also ordered Swisher County to issue surety bonds of $1 million each on three cases for which Jackson was convicted of selling drugs.
The Tulia cases have drawn doubt since an undercover agent was indicted for perjury.
