As an RN with a reputation of being a good nurse, it is very wrong to get involved with a felony offense of Assault. This could put you in a bad situation and could also put your nursing license in suspension or revocation. If this happens, contact a nurse attorney for assistance and guarantee that a nurse attorney can help you handle such a case.
On or about September 1, 2009, the RN was arrested by the police in Conroe, Texas for ASSAULT PUBLIC SERVANT (a 3rd-degree felony offense).
And another incident happened on or about October 27, 2009, when the RN entered a plea of Guilty to EVADING ARREST DETENTION (LESSER INCLUDED OFFENSE OF COUNT ONE) (a Class A misdemeanor offense committed on September 1, 2009), in the Criminal District Court. As a result of the plea, the proceedings against the RN were deferred without entering an adjudication of guilt and the RN was placed on probation for a period of two (2) years. Additionally, the RN was ordered to pay a fine and court costs.
In response, the RN states he went to pick up his son from elementary school and as he was pulling into the pick-up area, he saw a Fire Marshall standing in the drive-thru area making sure no one was parking in the fire zone. He states that he parked in a short parking space, out of the fire zone, but partially blocking a crosswalk. He also states that he got out of his vehicle to call out for his son, and the Fire Marshall told him to move his vehicle because he was obstructing the crosswalk, to which he replied his son was close by and he would move it in a second. He states the Fire Marshall told him to move his vehicle “now” and as he was slowly pulling out, he then added that he saw the officer with a notepad, jotting his license plate number. He states he pulled up to the next crosswalk and believing that he may be obstructing the crosswalk again, slowly backed out about six (6) to eight (8) inches, and put the car in park. The RN states his son was getting into the vehicle when someone yelled “You tried to run over me.” He also states the Fire Marshall was beating his fist against the side of his pickup yelling that he tried to run over him. He states he yelled back at the officer that he was not trying to run over anybody and was just there to pick up his son from school. He states the Marshall told him to stop then grabbed his radio to call for police backup. The RN states he was not asked for his driver’s license or insurance card. He states he slowly drove away because he figured he just wanted to arrest him in front of his son, the other children, and the teachers and parents, and since he already had his license plate number if they wanted to arrest him, they could do it at home. He states as he was driving away, the man identified himself as a police officer and yelled at him to stop his vehicle. The RN states he drove straight home and about twenty (20) minutes later, the police showed up at his home to arrest him. He states he was arrested for assault on a public servant and was taken to jail. The RN states he was out on bail the next afternoon. He states his attorney went to the police station to get a copy of the police report and was informed they had reduced the charge to “failure to stop and render aid.”
As a result of the incidents above, evidence was submitted and is shown that the RN had committed violations pursuant to Section 301.452(b)(3)&(10), Texas Occupations Code. The RN is now subjected to disciplinary action by the Board.
