Local man accused of endangering a child


A local man has been arrested for endangering a child in an incident that occurred in August of 2012. Dwight Devon Hall was arrested and charged with endangering a child and evading arrest on Saturday.

On August 14, an officer attempted to stop Hall's vehicle near the intersection of 5th and Colcord Ave. after he saw a young child hanging out of a window. Hall continued driving a block, then stopped as the officer approached.

The officer saw Hall trying to get the child buckled in, and then sped off as the officer approached the car. The officer gave chase, but quickly broke off the pursuit.

Hall is accused of driving at high speeds, running through stop signs and causing at least two vehicles to avoid possible wrecks. 

Despite obtaining a warrant, officers weren't able to find Hall for several months until Saturday. He is now in the McLennan County Jail
