DeWitt Board Member Accused of Battery Speaks
We have an update on the DeWitt County Board member who's in trouble with the law. Terry Hoffman, 55, faces two counts of felony aggravated battery in DeWitt County.
Hoffman was arrested Wednesday night and posted bail Thursday morning.
Hoffman said he's surprised he landed in jail after what he described as a routine "get acquainted" meeting with Teresa Barnett, and emergency management agency director from DeWitt County.
He said no harsh words were exchanged, but that he did poke her upper arm while making a point.
Barnett declined to comment on the case.
Hoffman is due in court January 16.
