Tony RossOn March 11, 2015, KSST General Manager Jim Rogers presented a Public Information Request to Sulphur Springs Chief of Police Jay Sanders for video from any source including but not limited to patrol car video, jail video, and other regarding the arrest and incarceration of Tony Chance Ross. The City of Sulphur Springs, represented by Fanning Harper Martinson Brandt & Kutchin chose not to release the information under Section 552.108 of the Texas Government Code, “Law Enforcement” exception and as a consequence, the city sought a Texas Attorney General decision concerning the applicability of exceptions to public disclosure of the information.

Following a Hopkins County Grand Jury presenting a no bill/failing to indict three Sulphur Springs Police officers and three Hopkins County Jailers, the city released a portion of the information requested. Other segments of the information are being reserved until paperwork is received from the Attorney General’s office.

The following is an unedited version of the arrest video from the police dash cam. Other videos may be made available and will need to be processed into the proper format for release and will be made available at a later time.
