NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office arrested a 24-year-old man late Sunday night in connection to allegations that he physically assaulted a woman and then fought with the NCSO deputies who responded to the domestic violence call.
When the man was taken to the county jail, he also fought with jail staff enough that deputies pepper-sprayed him, according to the arrest affidavit.
Jorge Alvarado Cabral, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches Jail on two third-degree felony assault of a public servant charges, a Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest charge, a Class A misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury charge, and a Class A misdemeanor criminal mischief charge between $750 and $2,500 charge.
According to the arrest affidavit, NCSO deputies responded to a 911 call about an assault at a home in the 500 block of County Road 610 at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday. When they arrived on the scene, the victim told the deputies Cabral had assaulted her before they got there.
The woman, who had visible injuries on her arms, also told the deputies that Cabral had broken the bed during the assault, the affidavit stated.
After the deputies went inside the home to arrest Cabral on an assault-family violence charge, Cabral allegedly fought them, injuring one of the NCSO deputies in the process. Eventually, the deputies were able to put handcuffs on Cabral, and they took him to the county jail, the affidavit stated.
While at the jail, Cabral became aggressive toward the jail staff, and another fight occurred, the affidavit stated. At that point, the NCSO deputies pepper-sprayed Cabral in the face to get him under control, the affidavit stated. Cabral was placed in a restraint chair for the officers' safety.
