Trinity, Texas (KETK) —
Pictured here is a 1994 Chevy Pick Up that was used in the assault of Constable Mark Cole.
Michael Harris was arrested by Deputy Mann on July 11, 2013. Harris was charged felony aggravated assault of a public servant, felony assault of a public servant and felony driving while intoxicated third or more.
Constable Cole was patrolling FM 356 and subsequently located the truck near the intersection of FM356 and Denman. The officers attempted to stop the Harris when the suspect fled to the One Stop parking lot and pulled in.
While ordering the Harrist out of the vehicle, he stated he would not get out and the officers would have to shoot him.
The suspect began pulling his vehicle forward when Cole tried to grab the door, the suspect accelerated, and Cole's arm was stuck in the vehicle.
The suspect carried Cole back to FM356 and he fell from the truck and rolled several times on the road. The suspect briefly paused after Cole fell and at that time Mann was able to stop the suspect and forcefully take him into custody.
Following this arrest, Precinct 2 Constables Office has seized and filed paperwork with the courts for the seizure of the vehicle.
