SAN ANGELO,TX – A San Angelo man has been indicted by a Tom Green County grand jury for aggravated assault against a public servant.

On May 18, 2021, a Sheriff’s deputy observed a Honda SUV driving on a public roadway and recognized the driver as Cody Witt. The deputy conducted a traffic stop, had Witt step out of the vehicle, and produce his driver license.
