An Odessa Police Department probable cause affidavit detailed that a local man was arrested after he pushed his ex-fiancé out of a vehicle she was operating in a public roadway.
Josue Delgado-Villa, 18, was charged with terroristic threat, a class A misdemeanor.
The reported incident happened at 4:57 p.m. April 18 near the intersection of Golder Avenue and 31st Street, the affidavit stated.
Dispatch reportedly advised officers that there was man and woman fighting inside a green Mazda Tribute while in the roadway. Officers arrived and saw Jazmine Casarez sitting in the driver’s seat who stated her ex-fiancée took her cellphone and the keys to her vehicle.
Casarez identified her ex-fiancée as Delgado-Villa, the affidavit stated. Casarez said she and Delgado-Villa had been arguing all day. Casarez stated she saw Delgado-Villa walking to her parent’s house, stopped to pick him up and she was taking him to his mother’s house.
While driving to Delgado-Villa’s mother’s house, Casarez reportedly told officers she and Delgado-Villa were arguing about ending the wedding. Delgado-Villa reportedly began to grab the steering wheel, began pushing on the gas pedal and began to state that he was going to kill them by causing an accident while she had control of the vehicle.
Casarez stated that Delgado-Villa opened the driver’s door and began to try and push her out the door while still driving on the roadway, the affidavit stated. Casarez was transported to Delgado-Villa’s mother’s house due to living there.
While at the residence, Delgado-Villa reportedly showed up on his own and was questioned about the incident. Delgado-Villa stated he and Casarez were arguing and he did grab the steering wheel while Casarez was driving just to her to pull over to just talk. Delgado-Villa was asked if he pushed Casarez out the vehicle and he stated that he did, but they were already parked.
Delgado-Villa was arrested, charged and transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center. He had one bond totaling $2,500 and posted bail on Tuesday, jail records show.
