Ex-Con Jason Wayne Crockett Lives Up to Middle Name and Nickname
And as if having that apparently-crime-causing middle name wasn't bad enough, 28-year-old Jason Wayne Crockett had an even more troubling nickname. Police in College Station said Crockett was known to his friends as "Crash 'Em Up."
And they also say he did just that Saturday evening, sort of. According to a report in the Bryan-College Station Eagle, police responded to a Texaco station there and found a crowd of people surrounding Crash 'Em Up's girlfriend, who was laid out on the ground. She told police she had been hurled there when Crash 'Em Up suddenly accelerated while she was trying to get into his 1996 GMC Sierra pickup truck.
Crockett was picked up at his residence, and authorities say that skid marks on the parking lot's surface are a match for the tires on Crash 'Em Up's pickup truck. He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
His long list of prior arrests includes hindering the apprehension or prosecution of a known felon and some drug charges, including a 2007 case in which police found the then-23-year-old while he was on probation posted up in a home near a school with weed, Xanax, Vicodin, meth, two glass pipes and a 38-year-old woman named Lisa Marie. Also found on the scene were 20 vials of sodium citrate, a chemical reported to enhance the effects of meth. (Hair Balls learns something new every day.)
In this case, Crash 'Em Up Crockett is being held on $12,000 bond. The current condition of his unnamed girlfriend was not reported by the Eagle, but a commenter there did say that his nickname stemmed from a motorcycle wreck he once survived.
