February 22nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

A Red Oak man was arrested Tuesday following an alleged assault in Coburg. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office reports 29-year-old Bill Joe Gillespie faces Aggravated Misdemeanor charges of Domestic Abuse/Assault and Carrying Weapons, and a Simple Misdemeanor charge of Trespassing. Officials say Gillespie allegedly became combative and tried to flee, when deputies tried to take him into custody. The Sheriff’s Office says when deputies caught up with Gillespie, he became even more combative. He was finally brought under control when deputies deployed a Taser. Gillespie was being held in the Montgomery County Jail, on $2,000 bond.
