WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — A Williamson County Sheriff’s deputy was dragged by a suspect during a routine traffic stop, according to Sheriff Robert Chody.
The incident happened at 3 a.m. on Feb. 7 at the 45 Toll Road/CR172.
Jonathan Nunnally, age 22, has been charged with aggravated assault against a public servant.
On Thursday, the sheriff's office identified the deputy involved as Tabytha Horseman. Horseman began work with WCSO as a corrections officer in April 2013. She was transferred to the law enforcement division as a patrol deputy in August 2017. The office reported she was not injured in the incident.
“A highly intoxicated driver in possession of harmless marijuana & harmless cough syrup (sarcasm) nearly killed one of my deputies. WilCo Sheriffs deputies showed great restraint when deadly force could've been used therefore it wont make national news. Deputy is ok, thank God!," Sheriff Chody tweeted.
