Man who sent two game wardens to hospital in chase given 50 years

LIMESTONE COUNTY - The man who rammed into two Texas game wardens in Limestone County has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

A Limestone County jury sentenced 44-year-old Teddy Davenport after he was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and evading arrest. The jury gave him 50 years for the assault charges and 10 years for the other counts. Those charges will run concurrently.

The game wardens were watching for illegal road hunting in October 2013, when they tried to stop a car with its lights off. That vehicle rammed into their patrol car. The cars were still drivable and Davenport led them on a high speed chase.

At some point, another car shined its lights in front of the game wardens, which sent them into a culvert. Two game wardens were hurt and one was taken to the hospital.

Davenport was caught two days later in a wooded area in Freestone County.
