Asleep behind the wheel of moving vehicle

What happened in Lytle last week? I’m glad you asked: Lytle PD officers handled 59 calls for service for the week ending on Sunday January 22.  Your officers conducted 88 traffic stops, those stops resulted in 74 citatIons and 14 warnings. 
Property Crimes:  We only had one possible property crime reported.  A Main St. resident reported his .380 handgun was missing.    
     Arrests:  Officers made three arrests last week:  #1 – A 16 year old male juvenile was detained for assault causing bodily injury (family violence).  He was transported to the Atascosa Co. Juvenile Detention Center.

2 – Officers responded to a report of a driver that was asleep behind the wheel of a moving vehicle!  Ofc. A. Lopez made contact with person and he woke up and sped off towards La Coste.  After a short pursuit he was taken into custody.  The suspect had four active felony warrants and was in possession of a loaded firearm (which is a no-no since he is a convicted felon).  He was booked into the Medina Co. Jail.  

3 –  A traffic stop by Sgt. Hanson on S. Somerset St. resulted in the driver being arrested for DWI. The driver was booked into the Atascosa Co. Jail.   

In other news:  
     On Monday, January 16, officers responded to a single vehicle accident on IH-35.  Sadly, the driver did not survive.  He was the sole the occupant.   
     On Thursday, January 19, officers assisted Medina Co. S.O. with a pursuit that resulted in a “bailout”. Of the 10 that fled, 4 were apprehended.  The incident occurred at IH-35 and FM 3175.   
   On the personal side…… I took the three oldest kids over to Beaumont last weekend for a youth conference.   In true Southeast Texas fashion it was cold and rainy, it took me a few minutes to remember what rain was.
