A local woman accuses Temple Police of using excessive force


Chief of Police Gary Smith has requested the Texas Rangers to be involved with the investigation of alleged misconduct complaint filed last week.

Elsa Martinez filed the complaint saying officers used excessive force when arresting her 15-year-old son on south 31st Street in Temple.

The officers present at the scene have been placed on administrative leave with pay.

"Such a status does not indicate any finding of wrongdoing, but makes the officers available to allow for the thorough and timely investigation," explained Crpl. Christopher Wilcox.

The investigation is anticipated to take several weeks to complete.
