Rumble The recent death of Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Trooper, Chad Walker, is a tragic reminder of the threats law enforcement officers face every day. Law enforcement officers in Polk County are not immune to these threats. Two recent encounters, captured on video, demonstrate those dangers. In one of the instances, an officer with the City of Livingston Police Department, as part of an investigation into a stolen vehicle, encountered defendants, Chaz Allen Lewis and Kasin Nicole Wilkerson, in a Walmart parking lot. The officer temporarily detained Lewis and placed him in handcuffs. The officer’s patrol car video shows that when the officer was distracted, Wilkerson, removed a handgun from Lewis’ pants pocket and threw it to the ground. A check of both defendants' criminal histories revealed that they each had been previously been convicted of felony offenses, which made their possession of a firearm a violation of Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 922.
