Winnie man charged with assault on Peace Officer

A Winnie man was arrested Saturday in Chambers County, charged with Attempted Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and also Assault on a Public Servant. Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne reports that on Saturday at approximately 9:30 p.m., his department was called to the Whataburger Restaurant in Winnie. The call was in reference to possible harassment and a disturbance.  According to the report: Joseph Reed 31, of Winnie, is alleged to have tried to strike someone with his vehicle as a part of an argument with two Whataburger employees.  The report said while trying to get Reed’s identification a deputy’s hand became entrapped when Reed rolled down his vehicle window. The deputy immediately grabbed the window with his free hand and was able to break the glass thus freeing his hand.  The report said it took two deputies to remove Joseph Reed from his vehicle. The deputies were eventually able to handcuff Reed, but not before the Chamber’s County deputies both suffered several cuts to their hands and forearms. One deputy was treated by Emergency Medical Service. The deputy then required further treatment at a local medical center to remove imbedded glass from his arm. The other deputy did not require medical attention. Joseph Reed was charged with Attempted Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon – his vehicle.  That is a 3rd Degree Felony. Add to that -Assault on a Public Servant, also a third degree felony. He was taken into custody and booked into the Chambers County jail without further incident. Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Randy Van Deventer set bonds totaling $100,000 on the two felonies.
