Larry P. Brashears was arrested

Larry P. Brashears, 21, was arrested without incident about four hours after the assault, said Debbie Morton of Highway Patrol Troop G in Willow Springs.
Brashears is being held without bond at the Texas County Jail on several outstanding warrants, Morton said today.Charges related to the assault are expected, she said.
The patrol declined to identify the trooper, but the Houston Herald newspaper reported that he is Cpl. Curtis Haden.The incident began about 9 p.m. Friday when the trooper was sent to U.S. 63 and Highway H, about six miles north of Cabool, to check on a 1988 Chevrolet pickup on the side of the road.Brashears was in the vehicle, and the trooper determined that he was wanted on a number of felony and misdemeanor warrants from several counties, Morton said.As the trooper was placing him under arrest, Brashears allegedly assaulted the officer and took his duty weapon, she said. Brashears then fled with the weapon.After several hours of searching, a negotiator was able to send Brashears a text message on his cell phone, which led to the arrest at 1:19 a.m. at the Gardner Ford Bridge north of where the assault occurred, Morton said. The weapon was recovered.The trooper, an 18-year veteran of the patrol, was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries. He was released but has not returned to active duty, she said.
