Law: Mug used in assault

February 8, 2014

A 64-year-old Granbury man accused of striking a 72-year-old man in the head several times with a beer mug during an argument over a woman turned himself in to authorities after a felony warrant was issued, Hood County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose said.

Clarence Odell Spivey, of the 1300 block of 4th Street in Granbury, is charged with injury to the elderly in connection with the incident that reportedly took place Jan. 17 at a bar in the 3400 block of Davis Road, Rose said.

The victim was transported to Lake Granbury Medical Center, where he was treated and released.

Spivey was released from the Hood County Jail after posting $25,000 bond on the third-degree felony count.


A 55-year-old Fort Worth woman led two deputies on a 4-mile car chase late Tuesday night before the vehicle was stopped by tire spikes placed in the roadway by authorities, but that was only the start of the adventure, according to Rose.

Deputies had attempted to pull over a Kia driven by Kay L. Delagarza on suspicion of DWI in the 1400 block of Lipan Highway at about 11 p.m.

Delagarza “initiated a 4-mile pursuit to Tin Top Highway near Lake Granbury Trail, where deputies used Stinger Spikes to end the pursuit,” Rose said.

Delagarza was taken to Lake Granbury Medical Center to have blood drawn on a search warrant issued, but “fought with deputies and hospital staff,” Rose added.

No one was injured during the incident, Rose said.

Rose said Delagarza is charged with felony DWI, third or more; felony evading arrest with a vehicle; and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor.

She also had a warrant for misdemeanor family violence assault, Rose said.

Her bonds totaled $58,500 and she was still in custody as of press time.


A 28-year-old resident of the Canyon Creek subdivision southeast of Granbury who was already in the Hood County Jail on Wednesday was served with a felony warrant, accused of choking his wife during a Feb. 2 disturbance, Rose said.

David Michael Schumm, of the 5400 block of San Jacinto Drive, was in custody on a previous warrant alleging assault family violence out of Travis County, according to the lieutenant.

Rose stated that the Feb. 2 incident in Hood County was set off as a result of Schumm and his wife arguing over his drinking.

“Schumm fled the scene and was later arrested on the Travis County warrant,” Rose stated.

In addition to family violence assault choking/previous conviction, Schumm was also booked on two Class A misdemeanor counts.

Those misdemeanor charges are interfering with a 911 call and assault family violence.

Schumm’s bonds totaled $80,000.

He was still in the Hood County Jail at press time.
