CROCKETT – A Crockett man is facing two felony charges and five misdemeanors stemming from an incident early on Saturday morning, March 9.
Glenn Edward Sikes, 30, was arrested on two counts of assaulting a public servant, two counts of criminal mischief, one count of driving while intoxicated, one count of reckless driving and one count of resisting arrest after he tried to gain entry into his ex-fiancé’s residence.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, Crockett Police Department Officer Nicholas Martinez and Lt. Lonnie Lum were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Village Way where they met with the complainant.
The complainant stated Sikes was intoxicated and she was afraid he might hurt her “… so she didn’t want to let him in. Glenn then kicked the door, shattering glass on the front door and putting a hole into the second wooden door.”
She stated she called the police at that point and indicated Sikes drove off in in a gray Dodge truck. After taking the report, the law enforcement officials applied for a warrant to arrest Sikes and went to search for him.
The report stated the officers were informed Sikes had returned to the Village Way location but by the time they arrived, he had disappeared. A second dispatch, at approximately 2:30 a.m. indicated Sikes had returned a third time and when officers went to look for him again, they observed his vehicle at the intersection of Bowie St. and US Highway 287.
A traffic stop was conducted and Sikes was ordered to step outside of his vehicle in the parking lot of the S&S convenience store.
The affidavit noted Sikes appeared to be intoxicated and when Lum attempted to place him under arrest for the damage at the Village Way residence, “… Sikes then began to resist arrest by pulling away, kicking, throwing hands and moving around.”
Sikes kicked Lum in the chest and another officer in the legs before he could be subdued and placed in a patrol unit for transport.
“Arriving at the jail, Glenn tried resisting against me (Martinez) going into the jail by pulling away and fighting us. Lt. Lum and I fought him all the way into the cell they were placing him in. During this time, Sikes tried to Bite Lt. Lum multiple times. After getting into his cell Glenn busted the cell glass with his head causing damage to the door which will cost $380 to fix and did some damage to himself,” the affidavit stated.
Martinez returned to the Village Way residence and spoke with the complainant about the second time Sikes returned.
“(She) advised us that he backed his truck into her yard and spun out causing dirt to fly all over her car and garage, also causing damage to her yard,” the legal document stated.
The officers returned to the jail to continue with Sikes’ paperwork but as they attempted to read a form to him, Sikes became belligerent and tried to fight the officers yet again.
He was booked into custody on two counts of assaulting a public servant, two counts of criminal mischief, one count of driving while intoxicated, one count of reckless driving and one count of resisting arrest.
His total bond was set at $49,000 which has been posted.
