Brandon Davis, a former Rhome police chief, was found not guilty of two counts of official oppression Thursday.

Davis was accused of unlawfully removing two citizens, Kenny Crenshaw and Ramah Burns, from a Rhome city council meeting in September of 2015. The jury deliberated for three hours before returning a not guilty verdict on both counts.

The State of Texas has also charged Davis with another count of official oppression, a Class A misdemeanor; one count of terroristic threat causing fear of imminent serious bodily injury, a Class B misdemeanor; and one count of stalking, a third degree felony. Those charges were severed from the other two counts of official oppression at a pre-trial meeting Nov. 29 and are currently pending trial.
