Top deputy calls out Rendezvous owner

Major Brad White, chief deputy at the Lamar County sheriff’s department, is disputing claims made by Horton Rendezvous owner Ronald Horton in the aftermath of a shooting there early Sunday morning. Those comments were published in the January 25 edition of The Herald-Gazette. As to Horton’s claim sheriff Larry Waller won’t allow his deputies to work security at the club, White said, “Yeah, we try to run road checks out there to cut down on stuff like this and they come out and take pictures and go to the county commission meeting to complain.” Ronald Horton’s father, Bennie Horton Jr., is vice-chairman of the commission and co-owner of the club. White also disputed Ronald Horton’s claim it took 20 minutes for deputies to arrive at the club when called. He provided documents which showed the 911 call coming in at 1:50:31 a.m., deputies being dispatched at 1:51:24 a.m. and the first units on the scene at 1:55:45 a.m. The incident report indicates the victim, Anthony (Ant) Scott, spit in the face of Kendra Horton and fired a shot at her. Multiple persons in the large crowd outside the club told deputies a club security guard shot Scott.
