Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 20-year-old man early Friday morning in connection to allegations that he got into a fight with another man and hit him in the head with a baseball bat.

Jordan Johnson Tyrell, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County jail on a second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. 

According to the arrest affidavit, the incident occurred on Dec. 10, 2016. An NCSO detective took the case over on Dec. 12, 2016.

The responding NCSO patrol deputy spoke to the alleged victim and several witnesses. The victim told the deputy that he was in his yard when Johnson came onto the property and started fighting with him, the affidavit stated.

At one point, Johnson allegedly retreated to his vehicle and came back with a baseball bat. Johnson struck the victim in the head with the baseball bat, knocking him unconscious, the affidavit stated.

Johnson’s recent aggravated assault with a deadly weapon arrest wasn’t his first run-in with the law. In September of 2014, Johnson, who was 17 at the time, and another teen were both arrested on felony injury to a child charges in connection to allegations that they assaulted two juvenile boys in the 1990 block of Pearl Street.

According to the arrest affidavit, Nacogdoches Police officers were dispatched to a disturbance in the 1900 block of Pearl Street on in the early morning hours of July 12. When they got to the scene, two juveniles told them that they had been assaulted by a group of black males.
