On April 26, 2020 at approximately 9:59 a.m. Texas County deputies responded to a report of a protection order violation at a residence on Highway 63 in the Houston area. Upon arriving at the residence deputies located David Griggs in violation of the order. Griggs was arrested and transported to the Texas County Jail. During the transport Griggs became combative and attempted to reach for the deputy driving the vehicle despite being restrained. Griggs was able to knock the vehicle out of gear, however the deputy was able to safely stop and restrain Griggs further. Griggs has been previously charged with violating the same order three times. 
Texas County Prosecuting attorney Parke Stevens charged David L. Griggs, age 43, of Raymondville with Assault 3rd degree Special Victim, Attempted Escape from Custody and Violation of an Order of Protection. Griggs was held in the Texas County Jail pending a $250,000 bond.    
The above charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
