Galveston County S.O. releases name of Bolivar drowning victim

GALVESTON COUNTY - The Galveston County Sheriff's Office is releasing the name of a man who drowned at Rollover Pass during the weekend.

Rudy Guzman, 31, of Houston, had been fishing and drinking with friends, according to Capt. Barry Cook with the Galveston County Sheriff's Office.

He tried several times to go swimming and told friends he'd gone swimming in the area of Rollover Pass in the past. According to Capt. Cook, investigators can't say Guzman was intoxicated.

He jumped into the water at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Two friends reported seeing Guzman treading water but then lost sight of him and called 911.

Someone who was fishing spotted the body Sunday evening.

(Sunday) BOLIVAR PENINSULA- by Haley Bull   The body of a man missing for more than 24 hours near Rollover Pass was found Sunday evening.  

A spokesperson for the Coast Guard said the 31-year old man was intoxicated when he jumped into the water around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Two friends with him reported seeing the man treading water, but lost sight of him and called 911.  

"It was really, really rough that night. The current, the tide had just shifted," Rick Ferguson said.

He was fishing nearby when the man jumped and his friends let people know someone was in the water.  

"By the time we got down here one of his buddies had already walked across so that the last time that he saw him was on this side, going underneath the bridge," Ferguson said. "By the time he got to the other side they had lost sight of him."  

The spokesperson said rescue crews searched for the man using helicopters and boats, but were unable to send in a dive team due to strong currents. Crews called off the search at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.  

Officers said Sunday evening, someone fishing called the Galveston County Sheriff's Office after spotting the body near the area.

Charlo Greene, a reporter for CBS affiliate KTVA, was doing a report on efforts to legalize marijuana in the state when she abruptly revealed that she was the owner of the Alaskan Cannabis Club, a group that connects medical marijuana patients with suppliers.

"Now everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska," she said.

"And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f**k it, I quit."

Greene then walked off the set, leaving a startled news anchor struggling to find words at the news desk. "Alright we apologize for that," the anchor said. "We'll... we'll be right back."

The station later tweeted an apology:

Jasper PD: Man could face intoxicated assault charge after driving over 5-year-old twice

JASPER - By Adam Boykin and Mike Lout

A five-year-old Jasper girl underwent treatment after she was run over by a driver Friday afternoon on the north side of town.

Police and emergency crews were dispatched to the intersection of Dennis Drive and Burns Streets shortly before 7:00 when it was reported that the child had been struck by an early model Buick LeSabre while she was riding a bicycle.

The unidentified child was taken by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital.

A witness at the scene said that the driver of the sedan was apparently backing up when he ran over the young girl, then shifted gears and moved forward, running over her again, before coming to a stop in a yard outside a home.

The child’s injuries appeared to be to her arm and legs and were not thought to be life threatening.

The name of the 52-year-old driver has not been released pending formal charges and arraignment. At last word police were still investigating the incident. However, officers said they expected that the man would be charged with intoxicated assault.
