COPPERAS COVE — A man remained in Coryell County Jail on Thursday after police suspected him of “aggressively walking” at an officer.
Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Darius Troy Morrow on Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a public servant. Price set his bond at $100,000.
According to the arrest complaint, an officer was cleaning his personal truck in the 600 block of North First Street Tuesday night, when he heard a verbal argument on a nearby street. As the officer stepped out of a car wash stall, he allegedly noticed Morrow carrying a baseball bat and walking toward another man who was carrying a knife.
Believing the two were going to fight, the officer displayed his patrol badge and yelled “stop, police,” states the complaint. Morrow immediately turned and began walking toward the officer aggressively yelling while holding the bat in an upward angle in his right hand.
