Bellmead, TX — A Bellmead teenager is facing a total of seven felony charges after he drove his car into a living room housing his ex-girlfriend and her three kids.
On Sunday shortly after 4:30 p.m, Bellmead Police responded to a disconnected 911 call coming from a house at 4431 Concord in Bellmead.
They received a second 911 call from the same address while responding to the original call.
A young woman told dispatchers her ex-boyfriend was ramming his car into hers.
Approaching police saw Noel Rodriguez, 18, leave the scene in his car.
He then lead officers on a chase through neighboring streets before winding up back at the original house on Concord.
Police officers said he then used his vehicle as a weapon.
“He pulled into the driveway. He stopped and positioned his car before he accelerated right into the house. Once it hit the house, the back end just went up in the air because he was going so fast," said Det. Michael Miller of Bellmead PD.
Miller said Rodriguez was tased and arrested when he put up a fight.
Alcohol and a bad breakup may have ignited the incident, but Miller said it didn’t have to go down the way it did.
“He’s looking at some serious time: Four accounts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, the Assault on a Public Servant for striking the officer in the face. And, the Resisiting aArrest and Evading in a Vehicle., So all of them were felonies," said Miller. "He should have just went home. He should have let it be and went home. Instead, he acted out and these are the consequeneces he's going to have to pay now.”
As of Monday afternoon, Rodriguez, whose 19th birthday is Thursday, is currently in the McLennan County Jail.
