A sergeant at the Wood County Sheriff's Department is finding himself on the other side of the law.
Sgt. Brent Gandee is now facing charges for two different incidents; one for failure to perform official duties, and another for battery.
According to one criminal complaint filed November 7th, Gandee responded to a call at the Comfort Suites in Mineral Wells, and failed to confiscate a jar of marijuana, as well as $2,500.
Another complaint, filed the next day, states that Gandee struck an auto-theft suspect twice.
Just a month ago Gandee received a prestigious law enforcement award from the United States Attorney's Office.
