LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man is still behind bars after he allegedly spit on a deputy while being taken to jail on a criminal mischief case.
Luke McMillon, 18 of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail without bond.
According to Angelina County Sheriff Captain Alton Lenderman, deputies were called out to the 500 block of Edgewood Circle. Lenderman said deputies were told that McMillon was upset and had used a baseball to bust out the back window of his brother's truck.
"When our deputies arrived on scene McMillon was being held down by his father and was yelling and cussing," Lenderman said. "We put him in restraints and talked to the family. Deputies put him in their patrol unit and he started cussing and kicking the door. They put him in the seat belt to keep him from damaging the unit."
Lenderman said while this was going on, the deputies also talked to the family and were told that McMillion had gotten high on K2.
"Our deputies took McMillion to jail and on the way he got irate and started cussing and he said something was leaking out of his eye," Lenderman said. "Our deputy ignored it because McMillion was still irate. He then told the deputy that he was going to spit on him. He leaned up and spit on him."
Lenderman said the spit landed on the deputy's ear and face.
Lenderman said as of now the only charge filed on McMillon is third degree harassment of a public servant. According to the case file, a warrant will probably be issued for criminal mischief pending an investigation.
