DALLAS (AP) - Former President George W. Bush may once have been commander in chief, but that apparently didn’t help him when he showed up for jury duty at a Dallas courthouse.

The 43rd president was not chosen for a jury Wednesday but did have his picture taken with people before leaving after a few hours.

Bush spokesman Freddy Ford confirmed Bush’s appearance. He was whisked away by Secret Service agents after not being chosen for the jury panel.

One of the jurors, Sheri Coleman, told The Dallas Morning News (https://bit.ly/1MPixbp ) that Bush was “very personable, very friendly.”
