NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Less than a week after being arrested and accused of driving drunk when he wrecked into a police officer's patrol unit which seriously injured the officer, a grand jury has indicted a Nacogdoches man on additional charges.
Tarcisio Chan-Ramirez, 31, is now charged with intoxication assault with a deadly weapon against public servant, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against public servant and two counts of delivery of a controlled substance.
A call for comment from the district attorney's office regarding the new charges was not immediately returned.
Officer Keith Hawkins suffered serious facial and pelvic injuries in the wreck early Monday. He is now listed in good condition at a Tyler hospital.
Trooper John Henley said witnesses saw Chan-Ramirez driving northbound at speeds of 90 miles per hour and even ran a red light before crashing into Hawkins.
Henley said Chan-Ramirez tried to run away, but witnesses of the crash tackled him and held him down until law enforcement officers arrived.
Also included in the indictments on Friday:
* Roger Otieno Gundo, 20, of Houston, and Ikechukwu Kenneth Nlemchi, 22, of Nacogdoches, on a charge of organized retail theft: SFA Police arrested the pair earlier this month, following an investigation into book theft on the campus. Police say they would steal books from one store and sell them to another on the same campus.
* Travis Austin Bailey, 25, of Nacogdoches, on a charge of sexual assault: Bailey is accused of raping a known female acquaintance earlier this month.
