Texas Cop Charged with Murder for Shooting, Killing Man who Ran Over his Foot

A police officer in Burnet Texas has been indicted after shooting a driver who ran over his foot on March 27, 2019.

X-rays showed no injuries to the officer’s foot.

Burnet Patrol Sergeant Russell Butler (pictured top, left) was arrested and charged Tuesday with murder and three counts of aggravated assault by a public servant for killing 25-year-old Brandon Michael Jacque.

Butler was also fired Tuesday April 23 for violating the department’s use of force policy, according to Burnet Police Chief Paul Nelson.

Chief Nelson said before being fired, Butler was on paid administrative leave.

It happened on March 27 after Burnet Police received a 911 caller complaining about loud music at around 1:40 a.m.

When officers responded, arriving on-scene, they approached a driver backing up a red car.

Chief Nelson says Butler was giving verbal commands to Jacque to stop, but the vehicle came towards officer Butler, running over his foot.

After the tire ran over his foot, Butler drew his weapon and fired his gun, striking the driver of the red car.

Brandon Michael Jacque was killed.

A female in the passenger seat of the vehicle was not injured.

“At that time, once that was done, [the officer] called for EMS and started medical procedures on that suspect to help save his life,” Chief Nelson explained, adding that Butler being placed on administrative leave was normal procedure.

After the incident, Butler was taken to Seton Highland Lakes Hospital where X-rays taken showed no bones were broken before he was released, according to Fox 7.

According to his indictment, on March 17, Butler, “did then and there, with intent to cause serious bodily injury to an individual, namely, Brandon Jacque, by shooting him with a firearm.”

Before shooting Jacque, Butler had been with the department for three years.

If convicted, Butler faces up to 99 years in prison.

As for Brandon Michael Jacque he leaves behind his parents, grandparents, a daughter, a sister and brother as well as nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and many friends, according to the DailyTrib.

In 2011, Brandon Jacque graduated from Burnet High School, where he competed in track, baseball and football.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
