A Brown County man remained jailed Friday on felony DWI and other charges after — according to allegations in a deputy’s report — the man threatened to shoot a deputy, had to be restrained in the emergency room during a blood draw and had to be wrestled into a patrol vehicle.
Casey Childs, 40, who lives in a mobile home park north of the airport, was booked on charges of DWI third or more, obstruction or relation and resisting arrest, Brown County Jail records state.
Childs’ bonds total $65,000.
According to deputy Kaleb Hopson’s report:
Hopson made a traffic stop for suspected DWI at at 7:53 p.m. on Highway 377. The driver declined to take a field sobriety test, and was taken to the ground when he resisted arrest.
As Hopson applied for a warrant for a blood draw, the driver was agitated, yelling and cursing and threatened to shoot Hopson.
At Brownwood Regional Medical Center, the driver had to be held down for the blood draw and later had to be wrestled in a patrol vehicle to be taken to jail, Hopson’s report alleged.
A criminal history inquiry through dispatch indicated the driver had three prior DWI charges with three convictions, Hopson’s report states.
In an unrelated incident, a 3-year-old boy was reunited safely with his mother Thursday morning after citizens reported seeing the boy walking along Highway 377 South, Brownwood police said.
Officers were dispatched at 9:20 a.m. to the area of Highway 377 and 10th. Officers met with concerned citizens who stopped to aid the boy.
At the same time, dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call from a frantic mother who lives in the 2100 block of Avenue B, reporting her 3-year-old son was missing.
Information was provided to the mother, and she and the boy were reunited.
This remains an active investigation by Brownwood police and CPS, police said.
