Last December, a College Station man admitted to causing a hit and run crash while driving drunk…then driving away with the victim on the hood of his car. Wednesday in Brazos County district court, 53 year old Andrew Bush was sentenced for three crimes related to the November 2018 incident. Updated information: According to Bush’s lawyer, Bush was placed on seven years deferred adjudication probation for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Bush’s lawyer told WTAW News that one of the conditions is that Bush successfully complete a nine month drug/alcohol rehabilitation program while in prison. And if Bush is found guilty of violating probation, he faces a 20 year prison sentence. Attorney Craig Greaves also said Bush sat in jail following his original arrest for approximately eight months before he bonded out. That was also taking into consideration by the judge during sentencing. Bush was sentenced to one year for his second DWI and 180 days for causing the crash. According to the Bryan police arrest report, the victim rode on the car hood at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour before the car stopped, which allowed the victim to jump off. The car struck another vehicle before it was boxed in by other motorists at Boonville and Copperfield.

A Bryan man who violated conditions of probation from a family violence assault incident that took place five years ago is headed to prison. 40 year old Derek Ryan Anderson entered a plea agreement with the Brazos County district attorney’s office that imposes a two year sentence with credit for time served. According to court records, Anderson failed to report or altered drug and/or alcohol tests 52 times and failed to complete a battering intervention and prevention program. This is after probation was extended in November 2020 for prior violations.
