NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 47-year-old man on Sunday after he allegedly shoved a disabled woman to the ground and then fled in to a nearby wooded area.

David E. Pirtle, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony injury to disabled charge and a Class a misdemeanor unlawfully carrying a weapon charge. Collectively, his bail has been set at $10,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO were dispatched to a home in the 1000 block of County Road 2051 in reference to a disturbance with weapons. When the deputies arrived on the scene, they talked to the alleged victim, who said that Pirtle assaulted her by shoving her to the ground and causing pain to her left leg.

The woman explained that she was injured in a vehicle accident in July and is currently bedridden or confined to a wheelchair when she is mobile.

After the assault, Pirtle fled in a nearby wooded area, the affidavit stated. The woman told deputies that he had a silver handgun with him.

A short time later, the deputies found Pirtle in the woods with two bags of property. When the deputies searched the bags, they found a silver Jimenez Arms .23-caliber pistol, the affidavit stated.

Pirtle told the deputies that all of the property in the bags was his.

He was arrested at the scene without further incident and taken to the county jail.
