Springtown man indicted for assaulting deputies, theft

Ross Pruitt

A Parker County grand jury indicted Ross Oliver Pruitt, 19, of Springtown, on two counts of assault of a peace officer/judge and theft of property, more than $2,500, less than $30,000, on March 5.

On Feb. 8, a Parker County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to a residence in the 700 of Highland Circle in Springtown in reference to a theft in progress, according to the arrest report. A male victim reported that Pruitt stole his truck out of the driveway of the residence and he had located it in the 300 block of Cactus View Drive in Springtown. When deputies arrived on the scene, the truck was found wrecked into trees.

Pruitt was also located in the trees by deputies and was told to stop but evaded a deputy on foot, according to the report. Pruitt was taken into custody following a short foot pursuit and admitted to stealing the vehicle.

While being taken into custody, Pruitt became verbally non-compliant with the deputies and attempted to pull away, according to the report. The deputies pushed him against a patrol vehicle to gain control and Pruitt turned and struck one of the deputy’s in the face. After physically putting Pruitt on the ground, Pruitt then grabbed and squeezed one of the deputy’s genitals causing him pain and kicked a Parker County sheriff’s sergeant in the back multiple times. The deputies were then able to gain control of Pruitt and secure him in a patrol unit.

“If Mr. Pruitt is convicted of assault on a peace officer, he will be facing a sentence of two to 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000,” Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “If he is convicted for theft — $2,500 or more but less than $30,000 — he will be facing six months to two years in a state jail facility and a fine of up to $10,000.”

Pruitt is being held in the Parker County Jail on a combined bond of $65,500.
