FROM THE BLOTTER: Alleged burglar found asleep


Aultman was released from the Parker County Jail on $27,000 bond Sunday evening, jail records indicate.

No phone number was listed for Aultman’s residence.


Sunday evening, a 63-year-old Cool woman reported a suspect shouted at her and fired a gun in her direction after she asked them to stop shooting on a nearby property, according to a Parker County Sheriff’s Office report.

Deputies were dispatched shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday to the 1400 block of Cool Junction road to a report of criminal trespassing, according to the report.

The woman reportedly told deputies that two unknown suspects were firing shots with a long gun on the property directly adjacent to her property.

After several hours, she went to ask them to stop, the woman reportedly told deputies, adding that when she asked them to stop, one of the suspects shouted at her and fired in her direction, placing her in imminent danger of serious bodily injury.

The case was filed as a deadly conduct report and forwarded to the sheriff’s office criminal investigations division. 

Rollover wreck

Two people received serious injuries in a one-vehicle wreck early Tuesday morning between the 408 and 409 exits on Interstate 20 in Weatherford.

Around 7 a.m., a 38-year-old woman driving a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer eastbound in the inside lane lost control of the vehicle before it struck a guardrail and rolled, according to Weatherford Police Lt. Chris Crawford.

The woman, who police believe was not wearing a seatbelt at the time, was ejected from the vehicle and into the wires on the median, according to Crawford.

A 27-year-old male passenger, who is believed to have been wearing a seatbelt and was not ejected, also sustained significant injuries, police reported.

Both were immediately transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth by ground ambulance due to their serious injuries, Crawford said.

Factors that may have caused the accident were still under investigation Tuesday afternoon, Crawford said.   

It was too early to say whether drugs or alcohol is believed to be involved, he said.
