Terroristic threats/aggravated assault

A complainant reported her daughter threatened to kill her, her brothers and then herself while wielding a butcher knife she retrieved from the kitchen. The daughter had apparently become angry when told she was playing too rough with her brothers. The complainant and the two boys were able to leave the residence and call 911. Deputies found the daughter in the bedroom, kneeling on the floor while facing the wall and holding the knife in her hands. Officers were able to safely remove the knife from her hands and detain her. She was later taken to Liberty County jail for processing.

DUI - refusal
Deal Street and Caines Street

Deputies attempted to stop a vehicle that was weaving in a roadway when the driver suddenly slammed on his brakes and made a sharp turn onto Deal Street. He continued to drive down the roadway and made another turn onto Caines Street before stopping. Deputies report the driver then stuck his hand out a window and threw the vehicle’s keys out. When deputies asked the driver why he did not stop earlier, they could not understand what he was saying because his speech was very slurred. He was placed under arrest and, while en route to jail, began to scream and curse at a deputy. During processing, he repeatedly pulled off the mouthpiece of the breath testing device. He was cited and given a court date.
