Henderson woman accused of driving drunk with her daughter, attacking man with her truck

Posted: Updated:

ELDERVILLE/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A Henderson woman was jailed this weekend, after law enforcement said she drove drunk with her child and attacked a man with her truck.

According to an arrest warrant, a DPS trooper working patrol heard from Gregg County dispatch at 9:14 p.m. Friday of a "rolling disturbance" on Texas 322 in Gregg County. Reports said the driver of a blue Nissan pickup was intoxicated, according to witness named Fernando Rivera. The pickup was stopped, and a young child was removed from the vehicle by her older sister, but the driver of the Nissan continued to follow River to a Shell gas station in Elderville, at the intersection of Texas 322 and FM 2011, the warrant showed.

Both vehicles pulled into the station's parking lot, and the "older sister" removed the keys from the Nissan and went inside the store. The driver of the Nissan, later identified as 44-year-old Lorena Cly, of Henderson, walked up to Rivera's black Toyota pickup and began to "try to smash the windows out to remove the young child" and place her back into the Nissan, reports showed.

Rivera then pulled forward when Cly had a second set of keys to her pickup and began to chase Rivera around the station until Rivera's path was blocked by another vehicle not directly involved in the incident. Cly then began to ram her Nissan into Rivera's Toyota pickup until Rivera could get away to the front of the store, reports showed.

At that time, Lakeport police office Fred Stuckey arrived and asked Cly to step out of her truck, but she became argumentative and physical. A Gregg County sheriff's deputy later arrived to help arrest Cly until the DPS trooper arrived on the scene, reports showed. The trooper said he smelled "the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and red bloodshot eyes" on Cly, who told the trooper that she had been driving and fighting with her daughter.

In a field sobriety test, Cly failed six out of six clues, according to the warrant. She suffered a minor injury fighting with Stuckey and the deputy and was transported to Good Shepherd Medical Center, where she agreed to give a blood specimen before she was taken to the Gregg County Jail.

According to jail records, Cly remains behind bars today on $15,000 bond. She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and driving while intoxicated with a child passenger.
