Thompson, Clinton 38

Clinton Thompson

On August 6th at approximately 1:00 pm officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department responded to a moving disturbance in the area of Sisk Rd and Southwest Pky.  Officers were advised that the driver of a white 2011 Chevrolet Silverado had pointed a handgun at another driver.  Officers located the parties involved and were able to get them stopped and identified at Langford and Legacy.

Offices spoke with the victim who stated that the driver of the Silverado, 38 year old Clinton Thompson, began “flipping him off” and using profanity as they were driving north on FM 1954.  The victim stated that he continued driving and once he got to the intersection of Sisk Rd and Southwest Pky he attempted to slow down and allow Thompson to go ahead.  Once the victim was eastbound on Southwest Pky he stated that Thompson slammed on his brakes causing him to have to stop at which time Thompson exited his vehicle, came up to the victim’s driver’s side door and pointed a handgun at the victim.  Thompson then returned to his vehicle and continued eastbound on Southwest Pky, at which time the victim notified police.

Officers were able to locate a loaded handgun inside Thompson’s vehicle.  Thompson was placed into custody and transported to the Wichita County jail where he was charged with aggravated assault.
