LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - When the Angelina County grand jury met earlier this month, they no-billed a 30-year-old Huntington woman who had been accused of being drunk when she was pulling two kids in a wagon down a dark road.
Ashley Nicole Matchett was original arrested back in late August, and she was charged with state-jail felony abandoning or endangering a child.
Capt. Alton Lenderman said that ACSO deputies were dispatched out to the 6500 block of FM 2109 in the evening of Aug. 26 in reference to a 911 call about a woman who appeared to be drunk walking down the dark road.
The deputies arrested Matchett on the endangering a child with criminal negligence charge because she was drunk as she walked down the dimly lit road, and she didn't have any reflective tape on her person or on the wagon the children were riding on, Lenderman said.
