According to LCSO Patrol Sgt. Bubba Pearson, Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Billy Knox was putting fuel in his side-by-side ATV when he was approached by Robbie Jay Brewer, 45, who lives in the Knights Forest area of Hardin.

Brewer is charged with second-degree robbery, which carries a penalty of up to 20 years in a state prison and a fine up to $10,000, if convicted. Brewer was not carrying a weapon at the time of the robbery attempt, authorities say.
