Brother charged in family assault incident

November 10, 2012

A fight between two brothers sent both of them to a local hospital, but one was arrested and faces a felony charge.

Jerry Reed Dobbs, 35, of the 300 block of West Pearl Street In Granbury, “used his arms to put his brother in a choke hold,” during the Oct. 22 disturbance at their residence, according to Granbury Police Department Deputy Chief Alan Hines. The incident was reported to 911 at 10:52 p.m.

“He did not pass out,” Hines said of Dobbs’ brother, whose identity is withheld because he was the victim in the alleged felony assault. “Both subjects were transported to (Lake Granbury Medical Center) for treatment of injuries.”

Dobbs was charged with assault family violence/house member impede breathing. That’s categorized as a third-degree felony offense.


An Irving man and a Hood County woman are facing felony burglary charges after being arrested on Halloween night, Hines said.

Allyson Marie McKeehen, 32, of the 1900 block of Yucatan Drive in the Brazos Bend area north of Granbury, was arrested by Granbury police along with Jeremy Don Thweatt, 34, of Irving.

Hines said the offense involved burglary of a storage building on South Meadows Drive, off of Glen Rose Highway.

“They were seen at one of the storage units and investigators learned the identities,” Hines said of McKeehen and Thweatt, who were taken into custody at the Yucatan address. “They had taken various items out of the storage unit, valued at $3,300.”
