VIDEO: Trinity Co. sheriff plays prank on sleeping police chief

TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A funny video of a prank that the Trinity County Sheriff played on the chief of the town's police department is making the rounds on social media.

The post on the Trinity County Sheriff's Office page said, "Sheriff Woody Wallace - 1, Chief Steven Jones - 0."

In the video, Wallace sneaks up on Jones, who is sound asleep. Then the sheriff triggers a loud siren noise and startles Jones awake, and the chief yells, "Aahhh!"

As Wallace laughs, Jones mutters something under his breath and promptly goes back to sleep.

The day this was taken Jones said he wasn't feeling too well and so he sat down on his couch to catch his breath and the next thing he knew he was pranked.

"My first instinct was I am gonna get him back but at the moment I was so tired," said Jones.

"After working late one night running warrants, I caught the chief catching a little shut eye," I couldn't resist scaring my good friend, Chief Steven Jones," Wallace said in the Facebook status update. "I expect a payback, but this is just too funny not to share."

The guys posted the video on the Trinity County Sheriff's Facebook page to show people that law enforcement have a good sense of humor and they can laugh at themselves.
