Sabine County constable accused of shooting girlfriend's hand bonds out

SABINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Sabine County constable who allegedly shot his girlfriend's hand Saturday night bonded out of jail Wednesday.

Sabine County Jail records show Jerry Dan Webb, 66, of Bronson, faces charges of first-degree burglary, first-degree aggravated assault, second-degree aggravated assault and state-jail felony evading detention. He posted a collective bail amount of $385,000 and was released from the Sabine County Jail Wednesday.

First-degree charges carry a maximum punishment of life in prison.

According to arrest affidavits, a DPS trooper was on the way to a reported shooting in Pineland and was on FM 1 when he was met by a black Dodge Charger. The trooper turned on his lights and said the Charger took off at a high speed.

The trooper reported the chase reached speeds of over 140 miles per hour before Webb finally came to a stop at FM 1 and State Highway 184. He was arrested without incident.

According to a separate affidavit, an officer reported arrived at a house in the 500 block of Longleaf Street and found Lori Willams, who was sitting on the front steps of the house crying and a large part of her clothing was covered in blood. Williams said Webb had shot her with a shotgun. She said he had come to the house and shot her through a door before dragging her from the room while "stomping me and hitting me in the head with his gun."

The man who lived at the house said he was at home when Webb forced his way into the house, pointed a gun at him and asked "where is she at?" and fired a shot in to the wall from the living room. He then went to a rear room and shot the door.

The officer reported the front door was damaged and there was a large amount of blood on the floor inside the front door.
