Department of Public Safety officials said the charge was filed in Williamson County, but the affidavit for his arrest could not be obtained late Monday afternoon.
Cooper said by phone Monday that he was arrested by a SWAT team at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. He was released after more than 10 hours in jail on $10,000 bond.
The arrest came just two days after Ector County prosecutors said they would not pursue misdemeanor charges filed by the Texas Rangers in connection with a December 2008 KopBusters hoax in Odessa in which Cooper set up a fake cannabis grow house. He had been charged with filing a false report to a peace officer.
Cooper said he plans to hold a press conference Wednesday at the state capitol to address his most recent arrest. Cooper also faces misdemeanor charges of filing a false report in connection with another KopBusters hoax in Williamson County and possession of cannabis.
