Former Texas Officer Accused of Indecency with a Child

(KHOU) -- A former Houston police officer, who was once wounded in the line of duty, is now being accused of indecency with a child in Brazoria County, deputies said.

According to the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office, Daniel Vaughan, 57, of Houston, was arrested and has been indicted on charges of attempting to commit indecency with a child and indecency by exposure criminal episode.

The sheriff is expected to release more details about the case against Vaughan at a press conference Wednesday morning in Angleton.

Vaughan made headlines back in 1993 when a gunman entered his police substation and shot him at point blank range. One bullet was lodged in his neck, while three more struck him in the head.

However, Vaughan defied the odds and survived, emerging from a coma after 18 days.

Months later he walked out of the hospital under his own power. He had lost his right eye and his left side was partially paralyzed.

Vaughan returned to the police force for an additional eight years after the attack. Since his retirement, he had written two books, become a real estate investor and a licensed charter boat captain and was active as a public speaker.

Vaughan remains in custody and is being held on a $25,000 bond.
