CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

A Houston County grand jury indicted a 57-year-old Grapeland man on a felony injury to the elderly charge in connection to allegations that he got intoxicated on synthetic marijuana and punched his 82-year-old uncle in the body and shoulder area where the man had recently had surgery.

Charles Ray Walker was among the 30 people a Houston County grand jury indicted on Nov. 4. East Texas news obtained the list of indictments Tuesday.
When Walker was arrested in September of 2015, he was booked into Houston County jail on a third-degree felony injury to the elderly charge.

According to the arrest affidavit the alleged assault occurred on June 9. Houston County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched out to a home in the 1500 block of County Road 2175 in Grapeland to check on a report of a domestic dispute.

When the HCSO deputies got there, the alleged victim explained that Walker had gotten intoxicated and had tried to fight him. The 82-year-old uncle said that he had surgery on his right arm and shoulder before he was assaulted, the affidavit stated.

The victim told the HCSO investigator assigned to the case that Walker had punched him in his injured shoulder, causing him to have to take medication for the pain.

Later, the investigator tried to interview Walker while the man was being treated in the emergency room at Crockett’s hospital. According to the affidavit, Walker appeared to be “heavily intoxicated and speaking in paranoia.”

Walker allegedly blamed the HCSO investigator, doctors, nurses, and staff for his injury and told them that if he told them what had happened, they would have to be killed. While at the hospital, the investigator learned that Walker had a gunshot wound to the lower right part of his stomach that had caused him to have a fractured pelvis, the affidavit stated.

Even though he denied being shot and said that he didn’t know what had happened to him, Walker allegedly accused the officers of hurting him and tried to leave the hospital without being checked out by a doctor.

Further investigation revealed that Walker had been using synthetic marijuana or another similar narcotic, the affidavit stated.
