Affidavit: Polk County man broke into woman's home, assaulted deputy

POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office arrested a 62-year-old man on Feb. 12 in connection to allegations that he kicked or punched a woman's door in and then fought the deputies when they tried to put him into a patrol unit.

Roy Lee Johnson, of Chester, was arrested and charged third-degree felony assault of a public servant and misdemeanor criminal trespass of a habitation.

According to the arrest affidavit East Texas News obtained Wednesday, a PCSO corporal was dispatched to a home on Barlow Road in reference to suspicious activity.

When the PCSO corporal got to the scene, the complainant told him that Johnson, her neighbor came to her house while she was trying to get into her bath and kicked or punched her front door open, the affidavit stated  The woman told the corporal that the door was locked and secure when she went to take a bath.

The complainant told the PCSO corporal that Johnson had never been allowed in her house and said that she wanted to press charges against him.

A shortly time later, the PCSO corporal found Johnson at his home on Johnson Road. When the corporal talked to Johnson, he said the sand pit was going to blow up and ran to a shed on the property.

The PCSO corporal was joined by another deputy who showed up to assist.

The affidavit stated that the corporal couldn't speak to Johnson because he wasn't making any sense.

Johnson was arrested for criminal trespass of a habitation. While the PCSO deputies were putting Johnson in the back of a patrol unit, he started resisting them, the affidavit stated. Johnson allegedly kicked one deputy in the right side of his face.

Eventually, the PCSO deputies got Johnson secured in the back of the patrol unit, and he was taken to the county jail.
