WACO (June 16, 2014) Clifton Earl Weeks, 49, was held Monday in the McLennan County Jail in lieu of $12,000 bond charged with three counts of assault bodily injury and one count of resisting arrest after a fight in a Waco neighborhood that left a female passerby, her mother and her stepfather injured.

Police initially identified the three victims as the man's girlfriend, mother and stepfather, but later corrected the information.

Officers were sent at around 9 p.m. Saturday to a home in the 2900 block of Parrott Avenue in response to a report that a man was fighting with two women and another man in the middle of the street.

When officers arrived they found a large man lying in the yard of a home, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

The man became violent as officers tried to talk to him and started to fight with one of the officers.

Ultimately five officers were involved in the fray, but eventually they were able to strap the man down on an ambulance gurney, Swanton said.

The man wasn’t injured, but was taken to Providence Health Center for further evaluation, Swanton said.

He was taken to jail after he was released about seven hours later, Swanton said.

A 21-year-old female passerby, her 41-year-old mother and 44-year-old stepfather were injured in the fight, Swanton said.

They were taken to a local hospital by private vehicle and were treated and later released, he said.

Officers determined the fight started between the man and his girlfriend, who fled from the house.

The man then targeted the 21-year-old woman whose mother and stepfather tried to intervene, Swanton said.
