MAYPEARL – Gretchen Wendell Powell, the suspect police and prosecutors alleged to have assaulted Maypearl Police Chief Lester Taylor and then tried to shoot him with the chief’s own gun, was indicted last week.

Powell’s relatives have maintained that certain people and information is being withheld from the public by the Texas Rangers and County/District Attorney Joe Grubbs’ office.

Midlothian lawyer and Duncanville municipal judge Kent Traylor is representing Powell in the incident which occurred in early September around 5:30 a.m.

"The ethical rules governing attorneys limit our comment to the press, but I think [it’s] safe to say that Mr. Powell intends to vigorously contest these charges in court," Traylor said.
