Daniel H. Webb of Livingston is busted (after busting himself over the head).
Fugitive Hits Himself in the Head Then Threatens to Kill Himself, LIVINGSTON, September 4, 2009 - A wanted fugitive that was working at a local restaurant decided to hit himself in the head when he was approached by Sheriff's Deputies. According to deputies, the wanted man, Daniel Hamilton Webb, 27, of Livingston was found to be working in the kitchen of City Grille located on US-190 at FM-350 South. Shortly after 5 pm on September 3, 2009 Sergeant Jason Paske and Deputy Mark DuBose (Both with the Polk County Sheriff's Office) entered the kitchen of City Grill where Webb was working. As the 2 deputies approached Webb, Webb grabbed a glass pitcher and smashed it over his own head. Webb then grabbed a piece of glass from the broken pitcher and threatened to cut his own wrist. The Deputies managed to talk Webb out of it and cuffed Webb, then took him out behind the restaurant. Webb's head was bleeding so an ambulance from Americare Ambulance Service arrived and treated Webb at the scene before transporting him to Livingston Memorial Hospital. A short time later, Webb was booked into Polk County Jail. Webb had two felony warrants out for his arrest, one for assault with a deadly weapon and another warrant for possession of a controlled substance.
A special thank you to Deputy Mike Nettles of the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
