A San Jacinto County sheriff’s deputy is facing criminal charges
after he allegedly falsified his state-mandated personal history
statement used when he sought employment with the department.
According to San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg
Capers, the deputy, Michael Lansing Flynt, was hired in January 2017 as a
lieutenant for the Patrol Tactical Unit after retiring from Humble
“He completed the application and personal
history statement required for all applicants by the Texas Commission on
Law Enforcement (TCOLE). In that government document, Flynt stated ‘no’
to issues concerning his former employment with Humble PD,” a statement
from the sheriff contends.
