Drunk driver crashes car, assaults first responders trying to help him
A drunk driver who assaulted the first responders trying to help him is due in court next week. Shortly after 11:00 pm on May 30 officers responded to an injury crash at Culberson and Shawnee. Arriving officers found a single vehicle in the ditch, with the driver, 32-year-old Billy Clark, trapped inside.
Clark became hostile with the officers and paramedics trying to help him, and started yelling racial slurs. Clark punched a paramedic in the head, attempted to punch a police officer, and spit on the necks and faces of other first responders.
Charged with DUI and three counts of Assault, Clark remains in jail on a $6,500 bond. He faces a judge next Thursday.
