Last Week’s Local Arrests Include Two People In One Car Combining For 66 Jail Visits

A Bryan police officer making a traffic stop last Wednesday night leads to the arrest of a local man and woman who have a combined 66 visits to the Brazos County jail. 63 year old Morris Britton of Bryan was arrested on a charge of driving with an invalid license with three prior convictions. According to the arrest report, the officer suspected Britton and a passenger were involved in prostitution and possibly narcotics. Britton, who was sentenced last year to four years in prison after pleading guilty to evidence tampering, is also awaiting trial on another charge of driving with an invalid license. He went to jail for the 36th time in 17 years. The passenger, 48 year old Stace Shivers of Bryan, was booked for the 30th time in 16 years. That follows her arrest on charges of giving a false name, possessing drug paraphernalia, and a parole violation. As of October 7, Britton was still in jail in lieu of a $2,000 dollar bond, and Shivers was still in jail on the hold for the parole violation and a $4,000 dollar bond on the local charge.

Customers at College Station’s Grand Central entertainment center last Monday night may have seen two police officers with management and someone wearing a holster with a handgun in plain sight. According to the arrest report, a manager told police that 26 year old Flint Patterson Jr. of College Station refused to take his gun outside and put it in his car. Patterson said a sign prohibiting guns was placed on the front door after he was inside. Officers checking the surveillance video saw Patterson look at the sign before entering. The officers also saw Patterson try twice to walk around the manager, causing the manager to step in front and raise his hands towards Patterson’s chest to keep him from passing by. Patterson, who spent the night in jail after he was arrested on a charge of criminal trespassing, was released after posting a $4,000 dollar bond.

Three witnesses tell College Station police they saw a man try to enter several parked vehicles last Wednesday night. The witnesses, who were on the roof of their apartment at The Barracks development, watched a black man wearing a white cap and white gloves shine a flashlight in the windows as he pulled on door handles. After driving away empty handed, officers found about four blocks away a car driven by the man matching descriptions given by the witnesses. That led to the arrest of 39 year old Tremaine Byrtle of College Station on two counts of attempted vehicle burglary. Byrtle, who is awaiting trial on charges of vehicle burglary, possession of a controlled substance, and evading arrest from an incident two years ago, is out of jail after posting bonds totaling $4,000 dollars.

A Texas A&M police officer on a traffic stop, and those in the vehicle that was stopped, escaped injury when the UPD patrol vehicle was rear ended by an accused drunk driver.

The patrol SUV sustained extensive rear end damage. Friedman is out of jail after posting a $2,000 dollar bond.
