Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks dispelled rumors that the man who rammed a security checkpoint at L-3 Mission Integration was being denied prescribed medication.

Meeks said Gavino Silva Zertuche Jr, 46 of Rockwall, passed the screening given to him by medical personnel at the jail.

“He was screened, and they said he was fine,” Meeks said. “He didn’t have any meds when he came in. We were able to find out he had a prescription for medication out of Rockwall, and we were able to get that filled for him. He’s in good health.”
