A 38-year-old local man accused of firing a pistol in the direction of his wife as she drove away from his home was released from custody after posting a $100,000 bond, according to Somervell County Jail records.
Curtis Allen Resecker, who resides on County Road 302 just north of Glen Rose, was arrested there on Christmas night after the incident, officials stated. Resecker was charged with a third-degree felony count of deadly conduct discharge firearm. He was released after posting the bond on Dec. 29.
Outgoing Sheriff Greg Doyle told the Glen Rose Reporter last week that the suspect “had reportedly fired several shots in the direction of his wife as she was driving away from the residence.”
Doyle noted that two juveniles were also in the vehicle with the suspect’s wife. The two were not living together as a couple at the time of the Dec. 25 incident, Doyle stated.
No injuries were reported and the vehicle was not struck by bullets, according to Doyle, whose final day in office as sheriff was Saturday before new Sheriff Alan West was sworn in.
Doyle had said that there was no indication given about a possible motive in the incident.
Deputies responded to a 911 call shortly before 10 p.m. that night, but when they arrived at the residence Resecker would not come out. The SWAT team then was called in, and Resecker surrendered without incident just after 2 a.m. on Dec. 26.
More than 20 law enforcement officials, including Texas Ranger Don Stoner, were at the scene before it was over.
