UPDATED: Kincaid Mayor Charged With Official Misconduct

Updated: Friday, May 30 2014, 03:25 PM CDT
KINCAID -- Kincaid Mayor Doug Thomas has been charged with official misconduct. It's a move that could pave the way for him being removed from office.

Thomas made an appearance in court today on the new charges, which were added to previous charges of possession of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors say the official misconduct charge, a felony, stems from claims that Thomas used Kincaid village employees and equipment to bust up concrete at his home in 2012. He's the second village official to be charged with misconduct, along with former police chief Richard Adams.UPDATED: Kincaid Mayor Charged With Official Misconduct
