Texas woman arrested for assault against husband and officers

Police have to respond to a wide variety of situations. Many will say that some of the riskiest and most unpredictable types of calls they respond to are domestic assault calls. Most of these calls are in a victim's home, where guns and other dangers may be present. Law enforcement often don't know who is in the house, what condition they are in and what other types of hidden dangers are there.  Two officers responded to this type of call recently in a Texas home.

A  man called police on a recent Thursday to report that he had been assaulted by his 54-year-old wife. Police responded to the home and reportedly found signs of assault on the man, including blood coming from his mouth, broken glasses and a swollen red eye. According to the man, his wife had become angry while he was talking on the phone with his sister. He stated that she took the phone from him and began hitting him repeatedly with it. He says he tried to restrain her, but that she started kicking him.

The man's wife was in the house and was cooperative with the officers when they arrived. According to one of the officers, the woman admitted to hitting her husband because she was jealous. They noted that the woman appeared to be intoxicated, and she apparently admitted that she had taken some medication with alcohol.

The officers took the woman into custody. As they were walking her out she allegedly got loose and managed to assault both officers before they were able to restrain her. She has been charged with third-degree domestic assault and third degree assault-special victim. She is being held on a $250,000 bond.

Intoxication can make people do things they normally would never do. Unfortunately, these poor decisions can have long-term consequences. For this Texas woman and others in her situation, the best course of action is to enlist the help of an experienced defense attorney. A knowledgeable attorney can work with the accused to combat the filed charges and work together toward achieving the most positive outcome.
