Two men were jailed Thursday after failing to follow court orders, according to arrest reports.

A 51-year-old Pittsburg man instructed at 10 a.m. in the County Court-At-Law by the judge to complete a urine test to be analyzed for possible alcohol or drug content. The Pittsburg man allegedly sat down and refused to rise and complete the judge’s order for screening.

The judge reportedly told the man his current bonds on an unlawful carrying of a weapon charge and a possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana charge were being tripled, then ordered a sheriff’s deputy to take the 51-year-old to jail.

The deputy complied, and the man was booked into the county jail at 11:45 a.m. June 2 for bond revocation on both misdemeanor charges. The Pittsburg man was released from jail Friday, June 3, 2022, on the newly set bonds of $6,000 on the weapon charge and $3,000 on the marijuana charge, according to jail reports.

Sulphur Springs Police officers reported stopping a Jewett man at 11:17 p.m. June 2, 2022, on Church Street for a traffic violation. A records check showed an outstanding warrant for truck driver’s arrest. The 57-year-old was taken into custody and transported to jail, where he was booked in on the Leon County warrant for violation of a court order.

The Jewett man remained in Hopkins County jail Friday, June 3, 2022, on the misdemeanor charge. Bond was set at $5,000 on the charge, according to jail reports.
