At the request of 16th District Attorney General Bill Whitesell, TBI Special Agents began investigating Billy J. King, Jr. on April 8, 2014. On April 3rd, the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department arrested King for Vandalism and Possession of a Weapon by a Felon. King soon posted bond on those charges, then immediately made accusations he had been assaulted by Cannon County detectives while in their custody. During the course of the TBI investigation, King subsequently reported he had been beaten by two detectives in the department’s interview room. Agents determined the accusations to be false.

On May 23rd, the Cannon County Grand Jury returned an indictment for King, charging the 50-year-old with one count of False Report to an Officer. When King returned to court today on the original charges, Agents took him into custody. At the time of this release, King was being held in the Cannon County Jail on $8,000 bond.
