One man arrested for illegal burning

GREENVILLE — One man has been arrested in Hunt County for an illegal burn.

David Kelton Haney was one of 17 people taken into custody Tuesday by local law enforcement officers.

Deputies with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office made 14 of the arrests, while responding to 25 calls and filing eight reports.

Haney, 35, remained in custody at the Hunt County Jail as of Wednesday morning. No additional details of the arrest were immediately available.

Hunt County is not currently under a burn ban, although there are still certain restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater then 23 mph.

Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.

Deputies also made 10 arrests for outstanding warrants and arrested one person each for burglary, fictitious license place and possession of a controlled substance.

Officers with the Greenville Police Department were dispatched to 89 calls Tuesday, took three people into custody and filed 16 reports.

The arrests included two people for theft and one person for outstanding warrants.

Courts

District Court

— Michael Shawn Maynor, 19, Quinlan, entered pleas of guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of assault against a public servant. Maynor was placed on 10 years of deferred adjudication probation on the assault and one of the possession charges and five years of deferred adjudication probation on the second possession count.

Maynor was also sentenced to 45 days in jail, with 180 hours of community service and was fined $500 in each case.

— Christina Jean Epperson, 41, Dallas, had probation on a charge of possession of a controlled substance revoked and was sentenced to 10 months in a state jail.
