One Charged in South Dairy Ashford Incident

A suspect arrested following an incident in which two Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies discharged their duty weapons at 9903 South Dairy Ashford about 8 p.m. on Tuesday (Jan. 19) has been changed with aggravated assault of a public servant in the 262nd State District Court.

The suspect, Don Jamar Boston, 27, suffered two gunshot wounds and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in stable condition. Two females, 26 and 27 years of age, also suffered gunshot wounds and were transported to Ben Taub where they were treated and released.

In addition, one Harris County Sheriff's deputy who discharged his duty weapon suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene; a second deputy -- who also discharged his duty weapon -- was not injured.

The sheriff's deputies were working an approved extra job at the Cambridge Crossing Apartments when they witnessed what they thought might be a possible narcotics sale. One deputy identified himself as a sheriff's deputy and asked Boston to roll down the window. Instead of complying, he attempted to flee. Boston struck one of the deputies with the vehicle, ran over his foot and knocked him to the ground. Moreover, when the deputy fell to the ground, Boston turned the vehicle toward him and attempted to run over the deputy again.

At that point, both deputies fired their duty weapons and struck Boston and the two female passengers. Boston then drove to the 12200 block of Ormandy where he called for medical assistance.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
