COLDSPRING — A driver passing through a fire scene at a high rate of speed and injuring a deputy was arrested on first-degree felony charges.

On Sept. 4, Bradley Roberts, 51, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a public servant, first-degree felonies.

According to reports, a San Jacinto County Sheriff’s deputy was requested to assist fire departments that were battling a large grass fire on Reese Lane in Coldspring. While the deputy was conducting his investigation, a Ford pickup truck came around the curve at high speed, disregarding multiple emergency vehicles.

The driver headed toward the first responders and deputy, honking his horn one time. The deputy gave the truck a command to stop, which was ignored and the vehicle continued driving through the scene.

When passing the scene, the driver’s side mirror struck the deputy’s arm and the driver continued traveling on. The driver initially disregarded commands from the deputy and tried to accelerate the vehicle forward towards a first responder, the reports state.

Several first responders assisted with getting the vehicle stopped, and the driver was stopped and detained.

Roberts was transported to the San Jacinto County Jail where he was booked in without incident.

    These are all lies. I talk to Robert's almost daily and he works hard and he is his moms care giver. Someone need to investigate the police that said this.
