COLBERT, OK -- New information on Colbert's police chief fired Tuesday night. Court records show in 2005 Bryon Gordon pleaded guilty to felony charges of impersonating a public servant. He was hired by the Colbert police department earlier this year.
Court records show Gordon stopped a woman in 2005, showed a badge and claimed he was a Grayson County narcotics officer when he wasn't.
Gordon pleaded guilty to the charges and was given deferred adjudication since it was a first offense. Prosecutors say he was not supposed to serve as a law enforcement officer again, and the charge would show up on any background check.
Our calls to Gordon were unsuccessful, and calls to Colbert city hall were also not returned.
Gordon was fired last night at the council meeting, but city officials have not said why.

No word yet on why Gordon was fired.
