Grand jury no-bills Huntington man accused of snatching phone, injuring child

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Huntington man who was accused of injuring his child's wrist when he snatched a phone away in December 2015 has been no-billed by an Angelina County jury.

When Timothy Reeves was arrested on December 23, 2015, he was charged with felony family violence-injury to a child. He posted a bail amount of $5,000 and was released from the jail later that day.

Lt. Stacey Seymore with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office said that Reeves was watching the child while the child's mother was at work when the alleged incident occurred at about 9:40 p.m. on Dec. 22, 2015. When the child went to call the mother, Reeves allegedly got angry and grabbed the phone from the child, causing the child's wrist to get twisted.

ACSO deputies were notified after the mother took the child to a Lufkin hospital to get checked out.
