(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Texas Republican Representative Ronny Jackson, who had previously worked as the doctor of former President Donald Trump, allegedly threatened a police officer prior to his arrest.
The incident took place on July 29, when the congressman was temporarily detained by law enforcement officers while he was at the White Deer Rodeo in Texas. The Trump ally, who had previously served as the White House physician during the Bush and Obama administrations stated that the incident had taken place while he was called to assist a 15-year-old girl facing a medical emergency.
Jackson, who was elected to Congress in 2020 had been drinking prior to the incident according to some sources. However, his office has opposed these claims.
On Friday Carson County Sheriff Tam Terry released the arrest report following a freedom of information request from The Texas Tribune. Reportedly Jackson had told the police officer prior to his arrest that he would “beat that motherf*****s’ ass!” He proceeded to yell many profanities and was getting visibly angrier as the officers handcuffed him and brought him to the ground.
Jackson also threatened that in the next election, he was going to ensure that the sheriff would be buried.
Chief Deputy Sheriff JC Blackburn revealed in the report that he had to physically restrain Jackson to block him from moving toward Trooper Young. The report also noted that following his detainment, Jackson had stated that he would be giving Texas Gov. Greg Abbott a call.
Kate Lair, Jackson’s communications director, claimed that Jackson had not been drinking and that law enforcement had blocked him from providing medical assistance in an emergency situation.
