ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office arrested an 18-year-old man on a deadly conduct arrest warrant out of Nacogdoches County Thursday.
The deadly conduct charge is in connection to a incident on Dec. 19, 2016, in which the man allegedly fired a gun at a group of seven people in in Nacogdoches.
Jadarius Davis is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony deadly conduct charge, a third-degree felony engaging in organized criminal activity charge, a Class A misdemeanor resisting arrest charge, a Class A misdemeanor failure to identify charge, and a capias pro fine for a Class C misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. Collectively, his bail has been set at $110,349 for all but the organized criminal activity
Andrew Jones, an assistant prosecutor with Nacogdoches County District Attorney's Office, said there is no arrest warrant or a probable cause affidavit in the county's records. However, he said those weren't necessary because a Nacogdoches County grand jury indicted Davis on the charge when it met back in January and set the bail amount for it at $100,000.
Jones said his office doesn't comment on pending criminal cases.
Jessica Pebsworth, a spokeswoman for the Lufkin Police Department, said that Davis' engaging in organized criminal activity charge stems from an April 15 incident in which Davis allegedly stole a dirt bike from First Cash Pawn, which is located at 501 N. Timberland Drive.
Pebsworth said the charge was upgraded to engaging in organized criminal activity because the crime was gang related.
