HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - Hudson Police say a Lufkin man faces a felony charge after he was arrested following a disturbance with his mother.

According to spokesman Lt. Jimmy Casper, officers were dispatched to a residence on Mary L. Evans Road around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday in reference to a disturbance.

Casper said Billy Richard Evans, 53, was in a confrontation with his mother at her home, even though he was not allowed there. Casper said he was near the road and drunk and arrested on a charge of public intoxication.

Casper said Evans threatened the officer many times during the arrest, while he was being taken to jail and at the jail. Casper said he even poked the officer in the chest at the jail.

Police filed an additional charge of retaliation on Evans.

Lufkin Police arrested Evans in August on an evading arrest charge.

According to the police report, an officer responded to a drunk driver call at the Polk's convenience store on North Raguet Street. When he arrived at the scene Evans allegedly tried to leave the parking lot.

When the officer tried to stop Evans, the report states he kept going and ran a red light.  He, then, allegedly turned onto a private, dirt driveway, and had a minor collision with a tree.

The report says as Evans was reversing away from the tree, the officer yelled, "Stop, stop, stop." Evans allegedly responded by saying he wouldn't stop until he was at home.

According to police, home was 50 feet away.  Evans allegedly stopped behind his mother's house on the 3800 block of State Highway 103 West.
