Hopkins County Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Corley Weatherford and Investigator Dennis Findley were made aware Anthony Glenn Ewton, 52, of Sulphur Springs did not appear in the 8th Judicial District Court at 9 a.m. Tuesday as he was scheduled to do. Two warrants had been issued for Ewton’s arrest on the charges he failed to appear on. So, the sheriff’s investigators went to his last known address on Locust Street in Sulphur Springs June 18 to try to serve the warrants, the investigators noted in arrest reports.
On contact, the man allegedly told the investigators he thought his court time was 1 p.m. June 18. His girlfriend was allowed to locate his paperwork. It showed Ewton was scheduled to be in court at 9 a.m. Consequently, Ewton was arrested at 10:30 a.m. on the warrants, the deputies alleged in arrest reports.
Ewton remained in the county jail at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 19, bond forfeiture on a possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance with intent to deliver and bond forfeiture on a possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance. His new bond was set at $50,000 per charge, according to jail reports.
