A 29-year-old White Settlement man was jailed early Saturday morning on a warrant from his hometown alleging assault of a family or household member that impeded breathing or circulation.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Drew Fisher reported seeing two people walking on the south Interstate 30 service road near mile marker 121 at 1:09 a.m Dec. 28. Fisher reported stopping to contact the pair.
After receiving identifying information from the pair, communications operators used the information to conduct a records check. A dispatcher advised Benjamin Sotelo showed to be wanted by White Settlement police for assault of a family or household member that impeded breathing or circulation.
Consequently, Sotelo was taken into custody and jailed on the third-degree felony charge, according to jail reports. He remained in Hopkins County jail late Saturday morning, Dec. 28; his bond was set at $25,000 on the charge, according to jail reports.
