According to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, 47-year-old Jimmy Jay Gillman, an officer in the Texas Department of Public Safety's commercial vehicle enforcement unit, was picked up just after 9 p.m. in front of his Cleburne home.
Police -- some with Johnston County's "Stop the Offender Program Special Crimes Unit," some with the Burleson Police Department, some with the Texas Rangers -- were watching him there after receiving a tip about Gillman's alleged drug use.
