BURNET, Texas (AP) A Texas police officer is charged with murder for fatally shooting a man who ran over his foot.

Burnet (BER'-net) Police Chief Paul Nelson says former Patrol Sgt. Russell Butler also had been fired for violating the department's use of force policy. KVUE television reports Butler was charged Tuesday with murder and three counts of aggravated assault by a public servant for the killing of 25-year-old Brandon Michael Jacque in the city about 55 miles (88 kilometers) northwest of Austin.

Police previously said Butler shot Jacque in March after responding to a call about loud music and finding him parked in a red car. Jacque began driving off and ran over March's left foot after being ordered to stop. Butler then fired into the car, hitting Jacque.

2. LLano is a very conservative cowboy/rancher town and county. That they even charged this guy ...

is very, very surprising. It doesn't seem the prosecutor over charged him, I see a pretty good chance of him getting some serious time.

On another note: if you ever get a chance to visit Llano, ignore Coopers over priced (but good BBQ) and try the mesquite fired out door pizza oven just north of the bridge on the east side. Cooks them at 700F and in about eight minutes.

Boy-howdy!
