Angelina County Crash
Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) ...
ANDERSON CO., July 24, 2013--On July 22, at approximately 6:44 pm., Corporal Gerald Kerr and Deputy Ronnie Howell went to 1707 FM 315 to serve an arrest warrant for 29 year-old Lesley Nicole Honeycutt. The warrant was for DWI/Failure to Appear.
While Cpl. Ker went to the front door to make contact with the residents, Dept. Howell went to the back of the house. When Dept. Howell got to the back of the house, he observed a white male, later identified as 23 year-old Dillon Michael Boyette, standing on the back portch. As Dept. Howell made contact with Boyette, he noted Boyette appeared very nervous, agitated, and was sweating profusely. He was also reported to have been using furtive hand gestures, rapid speech, and was unable to focus on conversation.
When questioned, Boyette told Dept. Howell that Honeycutt was not in the house. While Dept. Howell made radio contact with Cpl. Kerr, Boyette grabbed a cardboard box off a nearby table that appeared to contain something wrapped in foil and several black baggies. As Boyette then ran into the house, Dept. Howell followed and saw Boyette try to toss the black baggies under a table inside the house near the back door.
After a brief struggle, Dept. Howell was able to take Boyette into custody. As Dept. Howell was questioning Boyette about the box and its contents, Honeycutt came out of a back room and was yelling at them. Cpl. Kerr entered the house and detained Honeycutt.
Dept. Myers arrived at the location and, when he entered the house, Dept. Howell asked him to check the box and baggies under the table. Dept. Myers found four bags of what was determined to be ‘K2’.
Lesley Honeycutt was taken into custody on the warrant for DWI/Failure to Appear, and booked into Anderson County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
Dillon Michael Boyette was taken into custody on a warrant for DWI with a $3,000 bond, and charged with Hindering Apprehension or Prosecution, with bond set by Judge Carl Davis at $2,500; Resisting Arrest, Search or Transportation, with bond set by Judge Davis at $2,500; Tampering with or Fabricating Physical Evidence, with bond set by Judge Davis at $3,500; and Possession of Substance in Penalty Group 2, with bond set by Judge Davis at $2,500.
An arrest does not mean that the individual or individuals have been convicted of the alleged violation, unless otherwise noted. Individuals are innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.
