39 People Were Booked Into The Gregg County Jail This Past Weekend
Gregg County authorities were busy doing their job this weekend - protecting and serving East Texas communities. While out on patrol law enforcement was able to stop and identify several people who didn't realize that had a little too much to drink and instead of calling a friend or ride-sharing service, they got behind the wheel and drove or attempted to drive home. These people, in most cases, were field tested and then arrested for driving while intoxicated.
Looking through the booking report from last weekend, one of the most bizarre charges on the list is - BW/TAMP/FAB PHYS EVID W/INTENT TO IMPAIR HUM CORPSE - tampering with or fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair a human corpse. After looking at this suspect's record, this wasn't the first time he was charged with a crime of this nature.
While driving while intoxicated remains high on the list of reasons why these people were arrested in Gregg County this past weekend, others were arrested for:
- assault with a deadly weapon
- failure to identify - giving false information
- possession of a controlled substance
- no driver's license
- racing on public roadway
- unlawful possession of a weapon
Last weekend, arrests were conducted by the Longview and Kilgore Police Departments, Gregg County Sheriff's Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, and Marion County Sheriff's Office. Many suspects have posted bonds and are out of jail, while others await a court date. The following individuals are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
