LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - New information Wednesday about a story NewsChannel 11 brought you first.
A Dawson County Commissioner turned himself in at the county jail around noon Wednesday. An official police report obtained by NewsChannel 11 accuses Dawson County Commissioner Gilbert Tejeda of beating his wife.
The police report says last Wednesday Tejeda kicked, hit, and even punched his wife. It also says he took her cell phone and smashed it as she tried to call 911. The official charges are interference with an emergency communication and assault family violence.
Two warrants for Tejeda's arrest were issued Wednesday. NewsChannel 11 was told as soon as Tejeda learned of these warrants, he voluntarily turned himself in at the Dawson County Jail. Tejeda is free after posting two $1,000 bonds.
We made calls to Tejeda earlier this week and he's not called back yet. We'll bring you his side of the story if he chooses to comment.
