The Dallas Express has learned that politician Frederick Frazier turned himself in for an outstanding warrant.

Frazier, who overwhelmingly won the Republican primary for state representative of District 61 in May, was booked into the Richardson city jail on Friday, Richardson Police Department confirmed.

Frazier was investigated by the Texas Rangers in February after his opponent for District 61, Paul Chabot, accused him of impersonating a public servant and stealing campaign signs.

Frazier works for the Dallas Police Department as a Special Deputy to the U.S. Marshals.

DPD confirmed to The Dallas Express that a Collin County grand jury indicted Frazier for impersonating a public servant, a third-degree felony.

The department additionally confirmed that it had placed Frazier on administrative leave.

According to his campaign website, Frazier served in law enforcement for 26 years, including 14 years in his current capacity with DPD.

His endorsements include several police organizations, including the Richardson Police Officers Association and the Dallas Police Association.

The Dallas Express reached out to Frazier and his campaign responded ensuring it was merely a political ploy by his defeated opponent.

“Last month, Paul Chabot lost the primary runoff by a margin of 27 points. It was the fifth time he has lost an election. Now, Chabot is trying to overturn the results of that election by bringing trumped up complaints to law enforcement and testifying before a grand jury. Frederick Frazier is looking forward to having the opportunity to defend himself in court, where we are confident that jurors will see through Chabot’s lies in the same way that voters have five times before,” read the statement.

This is a developing story, and further details will be released as they become available.

Since Fredrick Frazier is such a master sign stealer perhaps he should work for the Houston Astros rather than the citizens of Richardson.

Hmm, if you lose an election 5 times maybe, just maybe NO ONE wants you? All I needed was to read the second paragraph and I began to wonder what whiny cry baby was making accusations.
