Terrell Bolton's gone -- to DeKalb County, Georgia, where, for now, he's still police chief -- but he's definitely not forgotten. For that matter, he isn't really gone: Bolton's family still lives in Dallas, and here's where Dallas's ex-top cop spends all of his off time. Which is one reason why he's being investigated by DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis, who won't say precisely why he's called for the inquiry after putting Bolton on two-week paid leave this week. Bolton's response to the inquiry is a familiar one: "It's interesting that I never had a problem in two years, and all of a sudden that [when] there's a political change, there's a political witch hunt to try to destroy me."
