NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 27-year-old man Wednesday in connection to allegations that he got high on a narcotic, threatened his sister, resisted arrest, and assaulted two of the deputies.

Antonio Rubin Morales, 27, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on two third-degree felony assault of a public servant charges, a Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest charge, and a Class A misdemeanor terroristic threat of a family member charge. Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $35,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO deputies were dispatched out to a home on County Road 6104 for a welfare check. When they got to the scene, the complainant told them that she believed her brother is on narcotics and has been threatening her. 

Morales was allegedly standing in the front door of the home and cursing out his sister when the deputies tried to talk to him.

The deputies ordered Morales to the ground, and at first it looked like he was going to comply with their orders. However, he resisted them when they tried to handcuff him, rolled over onto his back, and struck one of the deputies in the face and the groin, the affidavit stated.

“Deputies fought back and delivered multiple compliance strikes” to get Morales to cooperate, the affidavit stated. Morales allegedly kept fighting the deputies, and the struggle continued for several minutes.

Even though the deputies managed to get the cuffs on Morales, he continued to fight them, the affidavit stated. By then, other NCSO deputies had arrived to assist in the arrest. As one of them tried to grab Morales’ legs, he allegedly kicked him in the face.

After the deputies got Morales under control, he was taken to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries before he was taken to the county jail.
