ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A 55-year-old Lufkin man who was angry over someone running raw sewage onto his property allegedly punched an Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputy, after the deputy refused to wade into the sewage with him Wednesday evening.

Gary Allen Mills is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony assault of a public servant charge and a Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest charge. Collectively, his bail has been set at $6,500.

According to the ACSO activity report, a deputy responded to a prowler call at a residence in the 6000 block of Highway 59 at about 6:05 p.m. Wednesday. When he arrived on the scene, a “very agitated male” left the home and started screaming and cursing at the deputy.

At first, Mills told the deputy that prowlers were in his back yard, the activity report stated. Then, Mills led the deputy around to the back yard and showed the deputy raw sewage on the ground.

Mills told the deputy that he had reported his neighbors for running their raw sewage onto his yard. At that point, Mills waded into the raw sewage and got even angrier when the deputy declined to join him in the muck, the activity report stated.

Still screaming and yelling, Mills approached the deputy, and as the deputy tried to calm him down, Mills allegedly punched him in the face. After a struggle, the ACSO deputy was able to place Mills in handcuffs, the activity report stated.

However, the deputy wasn't able to load Mills into his patrol unit until back-up arrived, the activity report stated. While Mills was being loaded into the patrol unit, he allegedly kicked a deputy in the chest.

After the deputies used “OC spray” on Mills, they finally got him loaded into the patrol unit.

Mills was then transported to the Angelina County Jail without any further incident.
