CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

A Houston County grand jury indicted a 24-year-Crockett man in connection to allegations that he seriously injured two children.

Tyrell Beasley was indicted on two counts of third-degree felony injury to a child with the intent to cause bodily injury.

According to a police press release, officers and detectives were dispatched to the Houston County Medical Center emergency room. Two children were interviewed and police say they suffered injuries to the head, back, arms and legs.

The Houston County grand jury also indicted Bobby Albright Rush, 63, of Grapeland, on two felony counts of abandoning or endangering a child.

According to a DPS report, a Houston County trooper stopped Rush's 2013 Dodge pickup on US 287, approximately three miles south of Grapeland, for a traffic violation.

The trooper said Rush had an odor of alcohol on his breath and was arrested for DWI. The trooper said Rush said he had been in Crockett for several hours and left his two grandsons, aged 9 and 4, alone at his home.

The trooper asked Grapeland police to check the home and the children were released to another adult.

In addition, the Houston County grand jury indicted Raymond Smith, 34, of Crockett, on felony charges of arson and retaliation.

According to a police report, officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Sowescor Street on Monday to respond to a fire, which was out by the time they arrived.

They spoke with a woman, who said Smith set a fire to one of the bedrooms and left. There were two other people in the home when he left.

The woman said she had been arguing with Smith, who said his mother needed to die.

Police were able to catch up to Smith on George Briggs Street and arrest him.
