GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — A pre-trial hearing is scheduled today for the man accused of killing a Hutto police officer.
Colby Williamson has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a pubic servant. Williamson failed to appear in court today.
Police say he ran over Sgt.Chris Kelley in June after they got into a struggle.
Last month Williamson’s attorney told KXAN the charges against him could become more serious.
Williamson was arrested in 2007 on charges of driving while intoxicated by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. Prosecutors later changed the charge to obstruction of a highway passageway. He pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor.
He was also charged in 2007 with possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, but that charge was later dismissed.
In 2009 Williamson was again arrested on DWI charges, this time by Austin police. He was convicted of the misdemeanor and spent just over three months in jail.
He was arrested again in 2014 by Round Rock police officers on charges of driving with an invalid license and insurance.
Update: The hearing was reset to Sept. 21.
