The deputies spoke with the victim of the alleged assault, and learned the incident occurred the previous night, and that the suspect was no longer there.
According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, once the deputies were able to obtain information, evidence and witness statements, they obtained an arrest warrant for Michael Roy Vicars, a 64-year-old Chester man.
The next day, TCSO deputies located and arrested Vicars at his residence “without incident,” Weatherford said. He was booked into the Tyler County Justice Center and charged with felony assault. He is out of jail on a $10,000 bond, which was set by Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Jim Moore.
