Sheriff Hawthorne reported that both a former Chambers County Deputy Letitia Nacheal Fountain and a former DPS Trooper Kevin Dale Kelley were booked into the Chambers County Jail on a Class A, Assault Family Violence charges.
These charges stem from an alleged assault against Fountain’s ex-husband in May of 2012.
The case was investigated by the Texas Rangers who ultimately filed the charges against both former officers.
Fountain’s employment with Chambers County was terminated in December of 2012 and Kelley had resigned with DPS in early 2011. Both were released on personal recognizance bonds per JP2.
