SSPD: Frisco Man Had Subject Of Protective Order In Vehicle When Stopped

Deputies arrested a rural Sulphur Springs resident accused of assaulting his 15-year-old daughter, according to sheriff’s reports. In an unrelated incident, police reported a Frisco man had the subject of a protective order in his vehicle when stopped.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded at 5:47 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021, to a complaint of a disturbance at a County Road 45692 residence. Sheriff’s officials were told the 69-year-old resident has assaulted his 15-year-old daughter.

Upon arrival, deputies contacted the residents. The 15-year-old had bruising and injuries to both legs, a deputy alleged in arrest reports. After speaking to the parties involved, they determined the 69-year-old had kicked his 15-year-old daughter approximately four times, causing bodily injury, deputies alleged in arrest reports.

Consequently, father was taken into custody at 6:27 p.m. and transported to jail, where he was booked at 9:55 p.m. Oct. 21, 2021, on a Class A misdemeanor family violence assault charge, according to arrest and jail reports.

In an unrelated incident, Sulphur Springs Police officers stopped a vehicle at 6:56 p.m. on Interstate 30 east near mile marker 122 (Hillcrest Drive exit) for speeding.

Upon contact, police obtained out-of-state identification for both the driver and passenger in the vehicle. A records check, police reported, showed an active emergency protective order listing the passenger in the vehicle as the protected person the 27-year-old Frisco man is not supposed to contact, police alleged in arrest reports.

As a result, the Frisco man was arrested at 7:31 p.m., and transported by police to the county jail, where he was booked at 10:30 p.m. on a Class A misdemeanor violation of protective order charge, according to arrest reports.

Both men remained in Hopkins County jail Friday morning, Oct. 22, 2021, the Sulphur Springs man for allegedly assaulting his 15-year-old daughter and the Frisco man for violating the protective order, according to arrest and jail reports.
