GILMER, Texas (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a former East Texas county commissioner and his son on charges accusing them of holding a state game warden at gunpoint.

The incident happened Oct. 6 when the state game warden checking for hunting law violations on private land was disarmed and held by two armed men.

An Upshur County grand jury in Gilmer indicted former Upshur County Commissioner Lloyd Allen Crabtree and his 28-year-old son, Todd Crabtree. They’re both charged with multiple counts that include aggravated assault on a peace officer.

A Texas Parks and Wildlife Department statement says the men turned themselves in to authorities Friday afternoon and remain jailed with bonds of $1.5 million each.

Online jail records list no attorneys for the pair.
