When emergency personnel responded to a one-vehicle accident on FM 2108 Tuesday night, the driver involved in the crash allegedly threatened them with a knife.

The man also allegedly became "combative" with the responding Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and spit on them on two separate occasions, according to Trooper David Hendry, a DPS spokesman.

Noah Lee Clouse, 30, of Etoile, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of assaulting a public servant, a state-jail felony charge of driving while intoxicated with a driver under the age of 15 in the car, and a Class A misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, search, or transport. Collectively, his bail has been set at $25,000.

Hendry said the DPS troopers were dispatched to the one-vehicle wreck at approximately 6:40 p.m. Tuesday. The wreck, which involved a 2009 Mitsubishi sedan, occurred on FM 2108 about a mile from the intersection with FM 2109.

While they were en route to the scene, the DPS troopers were told that the driver, who was later identified as Clouse, threatened first responders with a knife.

"Clouse was combative and allegedly spit on officers on two occasions," a press release stated.

Hendry said Clouse had two small children under the age of 15 in the car with him. The children were released into the custody of a family member.

Clouse, who showed several signs of intoxication, was arrested at the scene and transported to a Lufkin hospital, so a blood specimen could be obtained. Then he was taken to the Angelina County Jail.

As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
