Deputy Butch Newell of the Johnson Co. SO in Texas was critically injured in a MVA earlier this week. He is currently in a medically induced coma to allow his body to begin the healing process. According to what I have heard locally, Deputy Newell may have suffered some type of health issue prior to the accident, although I have no direct knowledge of that.http://www.burlesonstar.net/ci_24606893
Although Newell's long term prognosis is good, there are some serious concerns about complications that may arise.
Deputy Newell is a veteran of over 30 years of service, including 15 years with the Johnson County SO. Although I have not had the honor to serve with the deputy personally, an injury to one of us is a blow to us all. Please join me in prayer for a fellow LEO in need.
