A passing motorist called police at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to report a man using a hammer to strike the hood of a Jeep Wrangler in a parking lot on South Mt. Vernon Avenue in South Union, Trooper Adam Janosko said in a criminal complaint.When the cops caught up with him, he claimed to be a Texas Ranger.
Baysinger “explained that he damaged the vehicle because he believed the owner of the vehicle stole it from his mother,” Janosko said in the complaint. “He further related and continuously related that he was a member of the Texas Rangers Law Enforcement department and that he should not be charged.”
Janosko said Baysinger “had the strong odors of mouthwash on his person and breath, spoke incoherently and repeatedly spoke about random events that did not and have never occurred.”Got to do what you can to avoid trouble when you get caught, I guess, but this excuse had been ruined by the best of us.
