Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 29 year old Dallas man on Monday for Aggravated Assault of Public Servant with a Deadly Weapon and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle. Officers received a call from a property owner stating that a tent had been set up on their property. As officers approached the property they noticed Jameal Joseph outside of the tent.
The officer approached the tent and Joseph became aggravated. He then displayed a large knife at the officer. Joseph threatened to harm the officer with the knife and the officer deployed his taser. Joseph removed the taser probe and told the officer, “You done f***ed up now. I’m gonna kill you.” He proceeded to advance on the officer with the knife. Additional officers arrived and Joseph was successfully tased and officers were able to arrest Joseph without further incident.
Joseph is currently being held in Hopkins County Jail on $205,000 bond.
