Cass County Sheriff Report

Cass County Sheriff’s Office officials report the following calls and arrests:

 

Tuesday, Jan 1

Deputy James Rachel was dispatched to a home on Texas Highway 77 West near Atlanta regarding a disturbance. The caller said her daughter’s boyfriend was working on her daughter’s car radio and the music was too loud. She asked him to turn down the volume, the boyfriend got mad, cursed and began "throwing stuff around," and then he tore out a car speaker and threw it into the yard. He "had his fist drawn at (her daughter)" and the mother said she stepped between the two and asked him to leave her home.  Deputy Rachel told the man he must leave. When he could not find someone to pick him up, the mother drove him to a friend’s house, followed by the deputy.
