Police Officer Assaulted While Making Arrest


Sweeny Police Sergeant James Bills was assaulted on Thursday, August 17, 2006, at approximately 3:35 p.m. in the 300 block of N. Main Street in Sweeny while attempting to arrest a man for trespassing.  The man, Chad Allen Boening, a 23-year-old Sweeny resident, had been banned earlier in the day from the Family Dollar store because of offensive language and disorderly behavior he exhibited while inside the store.


When police responded to a call that he was back in the store after being banned, Sgt. Bills approached Boening and attempted to arrest him for Criminal Trespass, a misdemeanor.  After one handcuff had been secured around Boening wrist, he broke free from the officer, struck the officer with the handcuffs to prevent his arrest, and then fled westbound on Fourth Street on foot. Chad Allen Boening



Numerous deputies with the Brazoria County Sheriff's Department responded to the call for assistance.  Boening was quickly located and arrested while attempting to return home on County Road 332 outside of Sweeny. 


Sgt. Bills was treated at the scene by Sweeny EMS for numerous lacerations to his arm and hand.


Boening was charged with Assault on a Public Servant, a Third Degree Felony, Resisting Arrest, a Class A Misdemeanor, and Criminal Trespass, a Class B Misdemeanor.  Boening was transported to the Brazoria County Detention Center in Angleton to await arraignment.
