NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches County grand jury has indicted a county constable accused of unlawfully using a taser on a woman.

David Sebastian Adams, 43, is charged with official oppression. He serves Precinct 2 in Nacogdoches County.

The indictment states Adams used the taser on the woman on Aug. 1.

The indictment was filed on Feb. 6. Nacogdoches County Jail records show Adams turned himself in to the jail on Wednesday and posted a $2,000 bond.

The indictment does not state why he used the taser on the woman. However, jail records do not show an entry for the woman's name, so it appears she was not placed under arrest.

Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges would not confirm whether or not they received the initial complaint about Adams and simply said that the ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Texas Rangers.

When East Texas News contacted the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers, they declined to comment and said that the Nacogdoches County District Attorney's Office has the paperwork.

An attempt to contact the DA's office also proved to be fruitless. The person that answered said to call the office back at the end of the week. Nacogdoches County District Attorney had not returned East Texas News' phone call as of 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Adams' attorney, John Heath Jr., also declined to comment.
