Arrest made in assault of two Texas Game Wardens

From Texas Parks and Wildlife Department:


Three persons have been arrested by Texas game wardens as part of their follow-up investigation after the capture of a man charged with assaulting two game wardens in Limestone County Saturday.

Arrested about 8:30 p.m. Monday were Michael Duane Daniel, 44, of Fairfield; William A. "Trey" Davidson III, 37, of Teague and Tanja Marie Lee, 37, of Mexia. The three were arrested after game wardens and other officers searched a residence about two miles southeast of Teague on FM 1451 in Freestone County.

All three were charged with hindering the apprehension of a fugitive and possession of methamphetamine. Tuesday morning they remained in the Freestone County Jail in Fairfield. No bond had been set.



TEAGUE -- Texas game wardens, with assistance from local and state officers, have arrested a suspect in the injury of two game wardens following a pursuit early Saturday. The arrest was made about two miles southeast of Teague in Freestone County at 3:15 p.m. today.

Taken into custody was Teddy Wayne Davenport, 44. He has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer and one misdemeanor charge of evading arrest. He was taken to the Limestone County Jail.

Two game wardens were on routine patrol early Saturday in McLennan County looking for road hunters when they attempted to stop a vehicle they had seen operating on a public road without headlights. The driver of the vehicle rammed the state vehicle the two wardens were in, but both vehicles were still drivable.

The driver of the suspect vehicle left the scene and the wardens gave pursuit. During that pursuit, someone in the fleeing truck shined a bright light into the eyes of the wardens and their vehicle went off the roadway, striking a culture. Both game wardens were injured, one requiring hospitalization.

The incident remains under investigation.

Assisting in the manhunt and investigation were sheriff's deputies from Freestone, Limestone and McLennan counties, the Texas Department of Public Safety, including the agency's aviation unit, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and the Teague Police Department.
