BRAZOS COUNTY, Tx (KYLE) — A Brazos County detention officer finds himself on the other side of the law Wednesday.
36-year-old Laketh McKinney was fired and arrested after Sheriff Chris Kirk initiated an internal investigation following reports that McKinney was bringing contraband into the jail.
Investigators say they found evidence that McKinney was involved in an intimate sexual relationship with an inmate in custody at the Brazos County Jail.
McKinney was suspended with pay on Friday but Wednesday Sheriff Kirk issued a warrant for his arrest.
He was terminated and taken into custody without incident.
