Criminal Defense

Recently, a man was arrested in Denton on assault charges after law enforcement claims the man scratched and assaulted his girlfriends of six months at an apartment. The man was taken to Denton City Jail on outstanding warrants for assault causing bodily injury with no previous convictions and having an open alcohol container in a vehicle. The girlfriend claimed that the man assaulted her about 20 times since they started dating. After the suspect assault the woman, she fled to a neighbor’s house only to return later that day when she received more abuse by the man.

Types of Domestic Abuse

A man in Denton was recently arrested on drug charges after law enforcement pulled over a vehicle in which the man was a passenger because of outstanding warrants and an expired motor vehicle registration. A woman was also arrested on outstanding warrants due to failure to maintain financial responsibility and not having a driver’s license. The woman’s vehicle was eventually towed from the scene because she did not have insurance. Both the man and woman were taken to Denton City Jail where the man was charged with possession of a controlled substance as well as possession of a dangerous drug. These cases offer examples of how law enforcement officers in Denton conduct traffic stops.

The Requirement of Reasonable Suspicion

Recently in Denton, a man walked into a Shell gas station claiming that he was going to die before taking off all his clothes. Law enforcement reports that the man appeared to be in an altered mental state due to methamphetamine intoxication. While law enforcement gathered the man’s clothes, they found crystal methamphetamine, five prescription pills, and a syringe. The man was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in unknown condition. After obtaining an arrest warrant, the man was later charged with possession of controlled substances. It is important to remember that there is no required level of intoxication to be charged with methamphetamine intoxication. Being under the influence of methamphetamine is also a different charge than possession of a controlled substance, which the man in this case was charged with.
