Commissioner Proctor has pushed for the county to assess its mental health resources and substance abuse treatment options after his son was arrested again in April of this year for felony possessing and intending to sell more than 20 grams of marijuana and having drug equipment. Jordan Proctor was was released from jail on bond at that time.

The commissioner has said people should be able to get mental health and substance without having to go through the criminal justice system.

“I am so tired. I’m out of money. I’m tired," he said in April. "So hell, I think it needs to have an exposure, and sometimes exposure brings a healing not for me, but for other families, on what to do.”

Police also arrested the son in 2014 for the armed robbery of a pizza deliveryman.
