Woodway police say a former officer arrested back in March for illegally obtaining hydrocodone has been arrested again on new charges related to that incident.

Woodway Chief Yost Zakhary says as their investigation continued, the department got additional warrants for Craig Bouse. Authorities in Ellis County stopped Bouse for a traffic violation, and took him into custody after discovering the warrants.

Bouse had been a Woodway officers, but resigned in January, before the initial charges were filed. Those first charges were filed after the department got a tip from a local pharmacy.
