Man indicted in officer dragging



Cody Scott Sherwood, 22, was indicted by a Parker County grand jury Thursday on a charge of evading arrest with a vehicle involving a Jan. 26 dragging of a Springtown police officer. 

He was indicted last month on a charge of aggravated assault of a peace officer with a deadly weapon, as well. 

Officer Brad Sauls was dispatched to the 600 block of East 6th Street regarding a domestic disturbance between Sherwood and his father, Springtown police reported. 

When Sauls arrived, Sherwood was found in a vehicle trying to leave, according to Springtown Police Lt. Curtis Stone. When the officer attempted to open the vehicle door, Sherwood “gassed it” and took off, dragging the officer a short distance before he was able to get free, Stone said.

Sherwood then reportedly drove away.

The officer had some minor injuries, Stone said.


Other indictments last week include:

• Adrian Obed Almanza, aggravated assault.

• Kendall Lynn Bagwell, credit card or debit card abuse.

• Mark Massimo Cardarelli, possession of child pornography and promotion of child pornography.

• John Mark Crouch, fraudulent use or possession of identifying information. 

• John Mark Crouch, theft, less than $1,500, with two or more previous convictions. 

• Steven Garet Dean, possession of a controlled substance, less than a gram. 

• Richard Dwayne Gentry, burglary of a habitation. 

• April Janine Gitthens, fraudulent use or possession of identifying information. 

• Ryan Kain Hanson, burglary of a habitation. 

• Christopher Allen Harlan, unauthorized use of a vehicle. 

• Larry Wayne Hill Jr., theft, more than $1,500, less than $20,000. 

• Fernando Lopez, driving while intoxicated, third or more offense. 

• Sean Ryan McCarthy, driving while intoxicated, third or more offense. 

• Thomas Earl McClendon, theft, more than $1,500, less than $20,00.

• Jeanne Marie Moreland, possession of a controlled substance, less than a gram. 

• Michelle Virginia Padilla, theft, less than $1,500, with two or more previous convictions. 

• Charline Michelle Vanguilder, possession of a controlled substance, less than a gram.
