Officers Impose Barriers on Press at Commissioners Court Meeting

Bill Zeeble

KERA's Bill Zeeble sends word that reporters aren't able to access the Dallas County Commissioners this week as they usually do. 

Commissioner John Wiley Price makes his first public appearance this morning since federal documents outlined serious allegations late last week. There are still no charges in the investigation.

An officer confirmed reporters will not be allowed through the barriers. Reporters routinely approach the commissioners for questions at the weekly meetings.

When commissioners court went to closed session, Zeeble says, Price disappeared first.
