Cottonwood Shores police chief under investigation regarding domestic disturbance


COTTONWOOD SHORES — Cottonwood Shores officials will consider accepting the police chief’s resignation during a meeting April 16 after he was allegedly involved in a domestic disturbance in March.

According to Horseshoe Bay police officials, officers from its department responded to a call at the Horseshoe Bay Resort Hotel on March 22 regarding an issue with two guests — one of them Cottonwood Shores Police Chief Tom Williams.

Police arrived and questioned Williams and a 51-year-old Weatherford woman, who hotel security said were involved in two “disturbances” — one in the hotel bar and a second in their room.

The woman appeared to have redness on her wrists and a bruised hand, according to the statement by Horseshoe Bay investigators.

During the incident, Williams “voluntarily” left with an on-duty Cottonwood Shores police officer who he called to transport him home, the statement read.

Horseshoe Bay police have since turned over the investigation to the 33rd/424th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, a police spokesman confirmed.

Cottonwood Shores City Council hired Williams in November 2014 for the police chief position.

Before coming to Cottonwood Shores, Williams served as an officer in Brownwood
