A 21-year-old Winnsboro man not only wrecked a vehicle Friday night, but ended up in jail on a local charge, according to arrest reports.

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers responded to a crash around 9 p.m. in Hopkins County. On arrival, they contacted the Winnsboro man, who was identified as the driver of a Ford F150 pickup involved in the crash.

A records check of all of the people involved using their driver’s license and information, showed the Winnsboro man to be wanted by Hopkins County authorities on an assault causing bodily injury charge. Dispatchers confirmed the Class A misdemeanor warrant to be active and the man was taken to jail on the June 4 charge, the trooper alleged in arrest reports.

He remained in the county jail Saturday morning on the charge, according to jail reports.

In an unrelated traffic stop, troopers arrested a Palestine man for possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana.

The 33-year-old was stopped for allegedly speeding in a Dodge Ram 1500 on State Highway 11 at Wildcat Way around 3:20 p.m. Aug. 30. On approach, the trooper reported smelled a strong marijuana odor emitting from the truck and conducted a probable cause search. A bag of marijuana and package of rolling papers were allegedly found, resulting in the Palestine man’s arrest and the truck being impounded, according to arrest reports.

The Palestine man remained in the county jail Saturday morning, Aug. 31, on the misdemeanor charge, according to jail reports.
