About 8:20 p.m. Sunday (May 14), police were on a routine traffic stop on southbound US Highway 75, when notified about an apparent altercation between two people moving northward in heavy traffic on the same highway. The officer, as reported by Van Alstyne Police Corporal Sharalyn Criswell, was able to locate and get the vehicle stopped. Inside it, Criswell said, were spouses, with the wife driving and the husband in the front passenger seat. Also occupying the vehicle were three children, ages 3, 8, and 9 years.

The officer determined that the husband’s actions, inside the car, “intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with criminal negligence, by act or omission, placed (the) 3 children younger than age 15 years in imminent danger of death, bodily injury, or physical or mental impairment.”  His spouse had bodily injury.

The officer jailed the suspect, a Sherman man, on one count of Class A Misdemeanor Assault Causing Bodily Injury and three counts of 2nd-degree Felony Child Endangerment.

At the Grayson County Jail, a magistrate set bail on the four charges at a total of $16,500, which the suspect was posted on Tuesday for his release.
