NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a convicted felon Thursday night after he allegedly got into a fight with his 28-year-old sister and hit her with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Richard F. Zoshak III, 26, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge and a third-degree felony unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon charge. Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $40,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO deputies were dispatched out to a home in the 1000 block of County Road 620 in regard to a disturbance involving a weapon. When they got there, they found Zoshak standing outside the home.

The deputies learned that Zoshak had a 12-gauge shotgun. Further investigation revealed that a physical struggle ensued when Zoshak’s sister tried to take the shotgun away from him.

During the struggle, Zoshak used the shotgun to hit his sister on both of her forearms, causing visible and painful injuries, the affidavit stated. She told the deputies that she was in fear for her life when her brother struck her with the shotgun because she was afraid he would fire it at her.

The NCSO deputies also learned that Zoshak is a convicted felon. He admitted to them that the shotgun was his, the affidavit stated.

Zoshak was arrested at the scene and transported to the county jail.
