WACO, Texas (AP) - A former jailer has been indicted after being accused of providing information to a biker later arrested in the deadly shootout outside a Waco Twin Peaks restaurant.

The Waco Tribune-Herald (http://bit.ly/2aTcPu1 ) reports a grand jury Wednesday indicted Jennifer Guftason Howell on a misuse of official information charge. The former McLennan County sheriff’s office jailer was released on bond after her April arrest. Attempts to reach her were unsuccessful.

An arrest affidavit says texts between Howell and the biker were found in cellphone data collected in the investigation into the 2015 Twin Peaks shooting that left nine bikers dead.

The affidavit says about two months before the shootout, Howell gave the biker a name and address linked to the license plate of a car that allegedly ran another biker off the road.
