AUGUST 30, 2011
Parker County Sheriff’s deputies responded to several calls over the weekend, resulting in numerous arrests.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said three suspects were arrested after an accident occurred in the 1300 block of Reese Lane, in Azle around 3:30 a.m. Monday, August 29, 2011.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to the accident scene and discovered the vehicle was used in the commission of several mail boxes being damaged earlier that same morning.
A male suspect, identified as Samuel Leigh Latham, 17, of Azle, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief. Fraser Kennean Dodson, 21, also of Azle, was arrested for public intoxication.
A 20-year-old female was injured in the crash and taken to a local hospital by ground ambulance. The driver of the vehicle, identified as Justin James Smith, 18, of Azle, was arrested and charged with accident involving serious bodily injury.
One of the suspects implicated he damaged other mailboxes in the area. The male suspects reported only minor injuries.
As of Monday afternoon, Latham remained in jail on a $750 bond. Smith also remained incarcerated, and his bond has yet to be set. Dodson was released Monday before noon.
In a separate incident, sheriff’s deputies arrested a 23-year-old-man in Millsap, after responding to a call Friday just before 7 p.m., in the 1400 block of Lazy Bend Road.
The complainant reported Benjamin Ross Johnson was creating a disturbance. Deputies reported the man appeared intoxicated, and was aggressive and hostile and refused to cooperate with them while attempting to detain him. Deputies arrested Johnson after he made a threatening remark toward the complainant’s dog and continued to be noncompliant and resisted deputies.
He was charged with evading arrest detention. As of Monday afternoon, he remains incarcerated on a $2,500 bond.
A third incident resulted in the arrest of Kenda Leigh Blaylock, 28, of Aledo. The complainant reported Blaylock caused injury to their 14-year-old daughter by throwing a ceramic statue at her, causing scratches. Deputies reported the suspect was combative and resisted arrest. She was placed in handcuffs and transported to jail. Blaylock was charged with resist arrest search seizure and injury to a child with intent bodily injury. She was released from jail Monday afternoon after posting a $10,500 bond.
