FLORESVILLE -- Maria Guadalupe Arismendez, 28, of Floresville is charged with evading arrest or detention and criminally negligent abandoning or endangering a child following her arrest March 20 after a morning pursuit that ended on F.M. 536 just outside the city limits.
According to Investigator Stephen Moore of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies received a call just before 8 a.m. about a disturbance on C.R. 121 that involved Arismendez, who had driven away from the scene. Deputy Emanuel Fultz spotted the vehicle on F.M. 536 near C.R. 101 and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Moore said Arismendez continued east toward Floresville, subsequently driving around Deputy Albert Sanchez’s roadblock.
Deputies were able to stop the vehicle on F.M. 536 at the Lodi Creek bridge. Arismendez was taken into custody, Moore said. A child and another adult riding in the vehicle were given a courtesy transport to another location.
Arismendez also was arrested in connection with an outstanding warrant related to a motion to revoke an earlier assault with family violence charge. She was taken to the Wilson County Jail, where Wilson County Pct.4 Justice of the Peace Richard “Dickie” Jackson set Arismendez’s bond at $15,000. Records indicate she still was being held as of press time March 24.
