SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Editor's Note: The story on Steven Lynn Lee that appeared on the KTRE Web site on Sept. 17 incorrectly stated that Lee kicked in the door of the residence of a man who had filed a personal injury lawsuit against him in connection to an auto accident. A corrected version of the story is below.
San Augustine County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 40-year-old Nacogdoches man and charged him with driving while intoxicated, obstruction of justice, and assault after he allegedly paid a visit to the Broaddus residence of a man who filed a personal injury lawsuit against him.
As of Thursday, Steven Lynn Lee, 40, of Nacogdoches, had been released from the San Augustine County Jail. He was charged with obstruction of justice, assault, and DWI, and his collective bond for the two misdemeanors and one felony was $11,000.
SACSO deputies responded to a disturbance call at a residence in Broaddus early in the morning of Sept. 16, Cunningham said. While on their way to the scene, they encountered a vehicle connected to the disturbance incident. Lee, the driver, was allegedly found to be driving while intoxicated.
According to police reports, Lee allegedly had permission to enter the Broaddus home of a man who had previously filed a personal injury lawsuit against him in connection to an auto accident.
Cunningham said the assault charge stems from the fact that Lee allegedly went into the man's bedroom, woke him up, and felt of his feet to see if he really was paralyzed. In addition, he said even though the details are sketchy on whether or not the act was intentional, Lee allegedly struck the man's wife on the chin while he was there.
