On July 10, 2018 at about 2:47 hours Terrell Police responded to a report of a black Jeep driving recklessly. It was reported that the Jeep was eastbound on W. Moore Ave and was last seen in the 600 block of W. Moore Ave Terrell, TX.
The vehicle was observed in the 200 block of E. Moore Ave by the officer who saw a black Jeep Patriot with heavy front-end damage and smoking. It was obvious the Jeep had been involved in a crash as there were approximately 10-15 people standing nearby and were waving to get the officers attention.
They pointed to the subject that was later identified as Taylor James Seeton, 26 of Euless.
A man was holding Seeton and stated that he was trying to leave. The officer then began to ask Seeton what happened. Seeton refused to state what happened, but only said that he was not driving and that he did not hit anything. Seeton refused to give his name and date of birth even after being asked several times.
Seeton was confrontational with several members of the gathering crowd as they talking amongst themselves. Seeton had caused the crash, which involved six different vehicles, not including the Jeep, and the other drivers were upset with Seeton. It was determined that Seeton’s license was also suspended.
Visual observations determined he was intoxicated as well.
Seeton refused to comply with Officers directions or perform any sobriety tests. He was found to be in possession of open containers of alcohol and indicators of drug use were present as well.
Taylor James Seeton was placed under arrest for investigation of driving while intoxicated, at which time he refused the taking of a blood specimen. Once at the jail, Seeton was positively identified by a Texas driver’s license picture.
A search warrant affidavit for a specimen of Seeton’s blood. The affidavit was signed by Kaufman County District Court Judge Michael Chitty. The blood specimen was taken at a local area hospital and the suspect was transported to the Terrell Municipal Jail. He is charged with Driving While Intoxicated 3rd, Fail to ID-Fugitive From Justice, and six charges of Accident Involving Damage>$200.
