A Lubbock Deputy Chief currently behind bars was granted his request of having his bond lowered. Deputy Chief Leath McClure was arrested on October 19 after it was revealed that he began a romantic relationship with a civilian employee at the Lubbock Police Department became abusive.

McClure was the direct supervisor of that employee and throughout the relationship threatened, scolded, and verbally assaulted the victim before escalating even further. The victim states that she began being physically assaulted by McClure to the point of being shoved, slapped, and grabbed by the throat. Eventually McClure is said to have held a gun, believed to be his department-issued gun, to the victims head and then his own causing the victim to fear for her life.

KAMC news did report that it was believed McClure was using steroids which caused his police vehicle to be searched, controlled substances were discovered in the vehicle. Along with that and the claims of assault McClure was arrested on two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Continuous Violence Against the Family.

McClure's attorney did file an Application for Writ of Habeas Corpus (a writ filed on behalf of a person who is thought to be wrongfully or illegal imprisoned) in an effort to get his $500,000 bond down to $25,000. The writ did state that McClure was no longer a danger to society; his bond was brought down to $100,000. The victim does have a protective issue in place that prohibits McClure from contacting her or any of her family members and prevents him from being within 200 feet of her work or home.

Due to McClure being associated with the Lubbock Police Department the Lubbock County District Attorney's Office did decide that there was a conflict of interest. This does mean that the case will be overseen by prosecutors in Ector County. As per the publishing of this article McClure is still being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.

Update: McClure has posted bond as of October 26, 2023 and was released from police custody.
