Sheriff: Man strikes girlfriend over smokes

April 17, 2013

A 38-year-old Hood County man is accused of striking his girlfriend in the face with his fist Thursday over getting a ride to buy cigarettes, according to Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

Deputies responded to the 5400 block of Water View Drive in the Arrowhead Shores subdivision northwest of Granbury, where they arrested Jason Eugene Jury.

Jury, of the 3000 block of Centaurus Way in the Comanche Cove subdivision, struck his 34-year-old girlfriend in the face “during an argument over needing a ride to the store for cigarettes,” Rose said, noting that she was not seriously injured.


Ricky Don Hayworth, 43, of Tolar, turned himself in on April 8 at the Hood County Sheriff’s Office on a warrant alleging felony violation of a protective order with a previous conviction, Rose stated.

Rose said Hayworth violated the protective order on March 24 in the 200 block of Pecan in Tolar by harassing the victim, his ex-girlfriend, during a disturbance.
