December 2017

After digesting lysergic diastolic acid (LSD), a man recently assaulted a Denton law enforcement officer, which resulted in a chase. The man was then taken to Denton City Jail where he was charged with assault of a public servant and non-alcohol related intoxication. Denton law enforcement was initially dispatched to the scene after reports of a man screaming for emergency medical assistance. Law enforcement proceeded to follow the man as he walked into traffic, which caused police officers to create a traffic block to avoid an accident.

What is LSD?

Each year in Denton and the surrounding area, there are several arrests made of individuals who possess or distribute LSD. A powerful hallucinogenic drug, LSD is manufactured from rye as well as other grains. In nearly all cases, LSD is produced in secret laboratories throughout the United States and other countries. During the manufacturing process, LSD is produced in a liquid form and then combined with another substance prior to sale. Most often, LSD is combined with blotter paper, which is perforated into single squares of LSD.

A Dallas law enforcement officer was recently arrested and charged with stealing hundreds of dollars from a grocery store located in Denton County. Employees at the store notified law enforcement that a man left the store with close to $830 in groceries without paying while wearing a Dallas law enforcement officer’s jacket. The law enforcement officer who was charged told the reporting officers that he had grown distraught when he thought his vehicle was stolen and went outside with his very full grocery cart. Law enforcement, however, smelled the strong smell of alcohol on the man’s breath. Law enforcement took away the officer’s badge and service weapon then transported the man to the Denton County Jail.

Shoplifting is the most common type of theft and frequently results in very serious penalties. A person convicted of shoplifting faces various penalties including fines, imprisonment, and being banned from the store where goods were stolen. Many people also find that a criminal record impacts the future of their career. Given the serious consequences associated with these penalties, this article will discuss some important pieces of advice that a person should follow if charged with shoplifting.

What is Shoplifting?

A woman was recently charged with two felony and three misdemeanors counts after she was involved in a very low speed chase that occurred on the roads between Denton to Lewisville. The chase occurred when the Highway Patrol tried to stop the motorist for an unspecified traffic violations. The driver was eventually caught when law enforcement deployed tire deflation equipment. The woman was taken to the Denton County Jail where she was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest with a vehicle, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and driving with an invalid license. The woman’s bail totals $110,000.

Each year, many people in the state of Texas are charged with evading arrest. These offenses frequently result in various complications that can change a person’s life. As a result, this offense raises some unique considerations about evading arrest charges.

The Difference Between Evading and Resisting Arrest

Evading and resisting arrest might sound similar, but these are actually two separate offenses.

Classified as either a misdemeanor or felony, resisting arrest involves a person attempting to interfere with a law enforcement officer’s duties. Felony resisting arrest cases are often reserved for situations in which a person responds violently.

Law enforcement in Denton recently arrested two people after discovering 2.3 grams of methamphetamine inside their Kia, which was parked at a gas station. At first, law enforcement was alert to the car because the vehicle’s driver had an active arrest warrant for possession of a controlled substance. Law enforcement responded by detaining the vehicle’s driver. The motorist informed law enforcement that he had both a methamphetamine pipe and a syringe in his possession. Law enforcement then engaged in a search of the vehicle, during which time it was determined that there was a bag of methamphetamine in a cigarette box.

The passenger in the vehicle gave law enforcement an incorrect name, and it was later determined that the woman had an active warrant for theft. The motor vehicle driver was then arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance while the passenger was charged with failure to identify as a fugitive from justice. Both driver and passenger were placed in the Denton City Jail.
