A Bell County grand jury indicted three Killeen men this week after police said guns, knives and fast cars were involved in three unrelated alleged armed assaults in the city this year.

Bryant Pacheco, 27, is accused of striking a man’s car with his own, and then being shot in the arm by the man in response. Pacheco was being held in jail on Wednesday in lieu of bonds totaling $103,500 on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and two misdemeanor charges of driving with a suspended license.

In an unrelated case, Clayton Allen Logsdon, 18, was being held in the Bell County Jail with a bond of $100,000 on an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge.

Also indicted was Jonnathyn Lee Thompson, 37, on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and evading arrest with a vehicle, a third-degree felony. He also was listed in jail with a bond of $100,000.

Pacheco

On April 8, Killeen police responded to a shooting call on Zephyr Road. “Officers arrived and found a man who had been shot in the arm who was identified as Pacheco,” according to the arrest affidavit.

Around the same time, other officers were dispatched to a nearby area regarding a call about a vehicle that had been struck by another vehicle. Police were told that the driver of the vehicle that had been struck fired shots, according to the affidavit.

Officers spoke with two people, a male driver and a female passenger. The driver told police that Pacheco was the woman’s ex-boyfriend and that Pacheco had previously threatened to hurt him if Pacheco saw them together.

The man said that as he was parked at a stop sign, a vehicle being driven by Pacheco sped up and struck his car several times. The man said that he “retrieved a handgun and shot into the vehicle that Pacheco had been driving,” according to the affidavit.

Police said that Pacheco, at the hospital, denied purposefully hitting the man’s car although he allegedly admitted to following them.

Logsdon

Killeen police on Oct. 23 were dispatched to a residence in the 2900 block of Cheaney Drive regarding an alleged assault involving a knife, according to the arrest affidavit.

Police said that Logsdon brandished a kitchen steak knife at a relative. A struggle ensued, ending with the victim leaving the house and then being locked out by Logsdon, according to the affidavit.

The victim told officers Logsdon had engaged in similar behavior before, as recently as Oct. 18. Logsdon denied making any threats, but admitted to stabbing a coffee table, according to the affidavit.

Thompson

On Sept. 10, Killeen police were sent to a pursuit in progress that spanned Belton and Killeen.

Police said that Thompson had told family members that he would hurt himself.

Officers tried to make contact with Thompson and he drove away at a high rate of speed, according to the arrest affidavit.

Lights and sirens activated, multiple officers chased after Thompson but he allegedly continued to speed away.

A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper came around a corner toward the direction Thompson was traveling and Thompson crossed over the yellow lines into oncoming traffic and toward the trooper’s vehicle, according to the affidavit.

The trooper moved his vehicle to the right away from Thompson.

At the last moment Thompson jerked his vehicle away from the trooper’s, according to the affidavit.

Following the incident, Thompson returned to his home where he surrendered to officers.
