When Lufkin Police officers tried to arrest a 23-year-old man for allegedly choking a woman at a residence in the 200 block of Denman Avenue Tuesday morning, he allegedly resisted their efforts to restrain him and later damaged the door frame of a patrol car by kicking it.

Jeremy Jeremaine Ash, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail. He was charged with assault-family violence-impede breathing/circulation, a second-degree felony and resisting arrest, search, or transport, a Class A misdemeanor. He also had three outstanding municipal court warrants for no car insurance, displaying expired license plates, and loud/disturbing/unnecessary noise.

No bond has been set for Ash's assault-family violence charge at this time. Collectively, his bond has been set at $4,752 for the misdemeanor charges.

Lufkin Police officers responded to a disturbance in progress at an apartment complex located in the 200 block of E. Denman Avenue. When the officers separated Ash from the woman and tried to arrest him, he allegedly resisted them. Eventually, LPD officers were able to handcuff Ash and put him in a patrol car.

Then, while Ash was being transported to the Angelina County Jail, he allegedly damaged the door frame by kicking it.

Detective J.B. Smith of the Lufkin Police Department said that the "‘family' relationship is not identified in the report."
