EDWARDS COUNTY, Texas – The Edwards County constable has been indicted on accusations that he fled from the scene of a car crash after damaging another vehicle, court records obtained Monday evening by the KSAT 12 Defenders show.
Constable John Maxwell, 56, is accused of knowingly leaving the scene of a November 2021 crash without providing his information to the other driver, records confirm.
Maxwell was indicted by an Edwards County grand jury May 9 and was formally booked on the charge May 14.
Maxwell is free after posting $3,500 bond, Edwards County officials confirmed to KSAT.
A county official reached via telephone late last week said Maxwell is on administrative leave.
Maxwell did not respond to a phone message seeking comment.
Maxwell’s indictment paperwork states the other vehicle suffered more than $200 in damages.
