‘Shots fired’ call ends with arrest for deadly conduct

A series of events that began with a “shots fired” call to a Bell Street residence ended Friday with the arrest of a 21-year-old Rockdale man for a number of offenses including deadly conduct.

Jimmy Jack Boyd was also charged with assault causing bodily injury and was detailed without bond on a parole violation from the Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Lt. J. D. Newlin said police arrived at the scene to find a father-son domestic incident had occurred.

“In the course of investigating that, it was discovered a subject had threatened to kill himself and his father,” Newlin said. “He was taken to the local hospital, where a nurse was assaulted. Then we took him to Scott & White in Temple.”

“On the way back from Scott & White the subject confessed to shooting a car with a 25-06 rifle,” Newlin said. “Upon investigation, evidence of that was found and the deadly conduct charge was filed.”

Donnie Dywane Martinez, 19, and Emanuel Castillo, 17, both of Rockdale were charged with possession of marijuana.

They were released after posting $5,000 bond each.

Newl in said one of the juveniles ran from the scene and wa s apprehended by DPS Trooper J. C. Brooks, Sgt. Stephen Goodrich and Ofc. Sterling Shepperd.

That subject was taken to the juvenile detention center and charged with possession of marijuana (under two ounces), possession of a controlled substance (less than one gram) and evading arrest.

The other juvenile was charged with possession of marijuana (less than two ounces).

ARRESTS—Benjamin Feitl, 25, of Rockdale was charged with theft of metal on March 6.

He was released after posting $6,000 bond.

He was released after posting $6,000 bond.

Fred Russell, 58, of Rockdale was arrested Monday and charged with possession of a controlled substance in connection with a lab report on an item.

OFFENSES—Police investigated two thefts during the past week, an incident on Copeland Street in which tools and a tiller were taken and a Hillier Street incident in which a television and jewelry were stolen.

Newlin said police are also investigating an incident in which a refrigerator was stolen.

Police said a warrant has been issued in connection with an incident in which a juvenile ran from an officer. “This is a separate incident from the chase involving the traffic stop that resulted in four drug arrests,” Newlin said.

Other offenses under investigation during the week included duties upon striking a fixed object, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and credit/debit card abuse.
