Officers with the Texas County Sheriff's Department handled several recent investigations.

A Houston man was arrested Saturday by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department (TCSD) on charges of third-degree assault after he reportedly hit another man in the face during a fight.

Brandon P. Duneske, 32, of 8205 Northview Lane Lot 7, received the citation after the incident, which also involved Terry White, 26, of Houston, and took place at the residence of White’s girlfriend on Mineral Drive in Houston.

When Duneske was located at a Thomasville Avenue residence, he told an investigating officer that he had gone to the woman’s residence to get a tire from White. After being arrested and taken to the TCSD office, he stated he had borrowed $20 from White and had gone to the girlfriend’s house to repay it.

The officer stated in a written report that neither Duneske nor White appeared to be telling the truth about the fight and that White and his girlfriend – who had witnessed it – changed their story several times.

The officer also stated that White was the only party involved who appeared to be injured.
