Not guilty plea entered in alleged shootout with sheriff's deputies

GREENVILLE — A Quinlan man has pleaded not guilty to charges alleging he pointed a weapon at two Hunt County Sheriff’s officers during a drug raid last summer.

Corey Hayes Parker was wounded during the incident. The two officers who fired on Parker were cleared by the Hunt County grand jury in January.

Parker received two indictments for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a public servant and entered not guilty pleas to both charges during an arraignment hearing Wednesday in the 196th District Court.

Judge Steve Tittle accepted the pleas and scheduled an interim hearing for April 3.

Parker was alleged in the indictments to have pointed a shotgun at Sgt. Mike Radney and Deputy Kelly Phillips in August of last year, which resulted in an exchange of gunfire with the officers.

Both of the indictments are first degree felonies, each punishable by a maximum sentence upon conviction of from five to 99 years to life in prison and an optional fine of up to $10,000.

The Sheriff’s Office Tactical Team served a narcotics search warrant at a home on Private Road 3837, off of North Shore Road early on the morning of Aug. 2, 2012.

Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks said the search warrant revealed multiple weapons, methamphetamines, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and cash.
