TRINITY, Texas (KTRE) – Longtime Trinity Police Chief Steve Jones, who has become something of a celebrity over the years due to his appearance on a CMT reality show called “Big Texas Heat,” is stepping down.
“I’ve been chief since June 19, 2008,” Jones said. “I’ve had a wild ride. The show, being on Dog and Beth, the Ozzy Show, viral pics, fighting with Tyrese from ‘Fast and Furious.’ Lots of craziness.”
Jones said he is going to focus on his duties as city manager. He has served as Trinity’s city manager and police chief for the past four years.
“I’m stepping over to be the city manager,” Jones said.
