LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A Panola County man out on bond for his involvement in an April 6 shooting that left three people dead in Longview is back in jail, this time for striking an officer with a brick to get escape an arrest warrant.

That man is 22-year-old Jacorey Dewayne Williams, of DeBerry. Investigators say Williams was approached Sunday night by a Carthage police officer on West Panola Street. The officer recognized Williams as having a local misdemeanor arrest warrant, but when he tried to handcuff Williams, the suspect escaped from capture, then picked up a brick and threw it at the officer's face. The officer deflected it with his arm, but he sustained bruising while Williams hopped a fence and got away.

According to Carthage police this morning, Williams has been apprehended and taken to the Panola County Jail. He's charged with aggravated assault of a public servant and evading arrest.

Williams new bond in Panola County has not been set, and he has not been indicted on his Gregg County charge.
