Road rage incident results in arrest

January 10, 2019

A man currently out on bond was reportedly involved in a road rage incident in the Katy area.

According to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman’s Office, a deputy was flagged down on Tuesday, Jan. 8, by a resident at the Shell gas station in the 15000 block of Mason Road. The complainant reported that during heavy traffic, an unknown male driver rammed his vehicle into the complainant’s vehicle twice, causing damage.

“The complainant advised he pulled into the gas station and the suspect followed,” according to a news release. “The suspect was irate and when he approached the complainant’s vehicle, he began a physical confrontation. The suspect observed the constable deputy’s patrol vehicle drive by and he quickly fled the location.”

Responding deputies searched the surrounding area and were able to locate and detain the suspect, identified as Cory Clinton of Hockley.

“Cory Clinton was arrested and booked into Harris County Jail, charged with criminal mischief,” said Constable Mark Herman. “His bond was set at $500 out of County Court 6.”

Criminal mischief is a misdemeanor.

Clinton is scheduled to be in court at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, for his arraignment on a felony voyeurism of a victim younger than 14 charge. He posted a $1,000 bond in that case. This case is assigned to Judge Frank Aguilar’s 228th Criminal Court.
