    TX: Civilian jailer arrested on gun violation

    Civilian jailer arrested on gun violation

    Civilian jailer arrested on gun violation

    FROM STAFF REPORTS

    Tuesday, September 16, 2008

    A former civilian jailer with the Gregg County Sheriff's Office charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon Saturday at the Gregg County Fairgrounds said his supervisor told him he could bring the weapon.

    Bryan Anthony Fusilier, 22, of Ore City was onduty at the time of his arrest with other deputies overseeing a crew of inmate trusties who were involved in the care of displaced animals from the Texas Gulf Coast, sheriff's Lt. Mike Claxton said.

    A deputy who was working the same project as Fusilier noticed him wearing a duty-type holster with the handgun and took the appropriate action.

    "Fusilier is not a licensed peace officer nor does he have a concealed Texas handgun license, therefore he is prohibited from carrying a handgun,"Sheriff Maxey Cerliano said.

    Under certain circumstances civilian licensed armed county jailers have the authority to carry a handgun, but Fusilier did not have that authority, Cerliano said.

    Cerliano said Fusilier made a poor decision and a bad choice.

    "When employees violate state law and policy, that person will find themselves facing criminal charges and disciplinary action", Cerliano added.

    Fusilier said he did have the firearm with him at the fairgrounds.

    He said he was told by a shift supervisor that wearing the weapon would be fine, but he did not want to elaborate.

    "It's really complicated," Fusilier said.

    He said he is looking for a new job, but he thought any career in law enforcement was now ruined.

    Cerliano said Fusilier was detained and arrested by a supervisor because he was violating the law.

    He declined to go into details because he said the issue is an active criminal investigation.

    "I'm sure the truth will be determined in court," Cerliano said.

    Fusilier was hired by the sheriff's office May 8.

    He had a temporary state jailer's license and was assigned to the North Jail facility.

    Fusilier was fired from the sheriff's office after his arrest.

    This is one of those cases where if you rely on somebody elses information you could end up facing charges,that's why it's important to know the carry laws where you live

    Nope, we have to CCW pistols. But I can freely walk down the road with a rifle slung on my back, not real wise but legal none the less.

    Not to mention they have to be a certified Level 3 SG, if my memory serves me correctly.
