NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested at a 27-year-old man on a laundry list of felony and misdemeanor charges after they found him to be in possession of crack cocaine at a house in the 100 block of Hurst Street with two small children present.
Dekovan Aliumjin Hall, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony obstruction or retaliation charge, a third-degree possession of a controlled substance between 1 and 4 grams charge, two state-jail felony endangering a child charges, and a Class A misdemeanor resist arrest, search, or transport charge.
Collectively, Hall's bail amount has been set at $42,500.
According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO deputies went to the house on Hurst Street as part of an ongoing drug investigation. Hall was found to be in possession of clear plastic bag containing what is believed to be between 1 and 4 grams of crack cocaine. The affidavit stated that the crack was "in plain view and accessible" to two children under the age of 15.
When the deputies arrested Hall and tried to put him in a patrol unit, he allegedly resisted them by exiting the vehicle and putting his knee in the door. As a result, the NCSO deputies had to use force to get Hall into the patrol unit, the affidavit stated.
During the process, Hall threatened to beat a deputy's [expletive] for the force they had to use to get him into the patrol vehicle, according to the affidavit.
