Two Baytown police officers, jailer indicted on aggravated assault charges after controversial arrest

HOUSTON — A Harris County grand jury has indicted two Baytown Police officers and a jailer Thursday for their roles in a case we first told you about in July of 2019.

Officers Teddy Sims and Samuel Serrett and jailer Shane Dunlap are charged with aggravated assault.

Bodycam footage showed them roughing up Kedric Crawford, then 45, who was treated at Ben Taub for his injuries. 

Editor's note: The video above originally aired on July 25, 2019.

“Nobody is above the law, including those who have a duty to enforce the law,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said.

Crawford told KHOU 11 that things escalated quickly that night after he pulled into the H-E-B parking lot on Garth Road. 

In the bodycam footage, Crawford is heard asking the officer why he’s been stopped.

While searching his car the officer tells Crawford he’s free to go at any time.

However, seconds later the video shows the officer grab Crawford and slam him on the hood of the car and then to the ground.

Baytown police Lieutenant Steve Dorris said Crawford was resisting arrest when the officer used a Taser on him.

"I knew that for a fact that they was not trying to just beat up a person. They was actually trying to kill me," Crawford said.

He hired attorney Ben Crump and sued the department.

“The police actually admit that they were punching him and he had to have stitches above his eye,” Crump said. 

The well-known attorney also represents the family of Pamela Turner, who was killed by a Baytown officer a couple of months before Crawford's case. Officer Juan Delacruz was indicted in 2020 on a charge of aggravated assault by a public servant.

“Baytown, you cannot continue to attack American citizens just because of their color of their skin,” Crump said at the time.

If convicted, Sims, Serrett and Dunlap could get from five years up to life in prison.

Thank you to all the hard working officers we do a great job of protecting and serving I appreciate your service. BAYTOWN police department have some of the worst offices who don’t know how to handle certain cases. They need to go back to training school to remember what makes a good officer. I had a situation call the officers out trying to follow up because of the nature of the case left messages to have the offer call me back and no call back. And the individuals answering the phone isn’t any better they have poor customer service skills when dealing with others. I pray I never need to call them again I rate my experience with Baytown Police Department as ZERO.

Two suburban Houston officers and a jailer were indicted Thursday in an alleged assault of a man during a traffic stop.

Baytown police Officers Teddy Sims and Samuel Serrett and detention officer Shane Dunlap were each indicted on a felony charge of aggravated assault.

Prosecutors allege they assaulted Kedric Crawford after officers stopped him in July 2019. Baytown police say Crawford resisted officers as they searched his vehicle and were forced to use a stun gun on him. They charged him with assaulting an officer, but that count was later dropped.

"Nobody is above the law, including those who have a duty to enforce the law," Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement.

Baytown Assistant Police Chief Eric Freed said his agency could not immediately comment on the indictments.

Court records did not list attorneys who could speak on behalf of the officers.

In a lawsuit, Crawford’s attorney said his client cooperated with officers and was punched and violently slammed to the ground for no justifiable reason. The lawsuit is pending in federal court in Houston.

'Nobody is above the law:' 2 Baytown officers indicted for alleged 2019 assault of man

BAYTOWN, Texas (KTRK) -- Two Baytown police officers and a jailer have been indicted for their alleged roles in the 2019 assault of a man.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted officers Teddy Sims and Samuel Serrett on a first-degree felony offense of aggravated assault.

In the July 2019 incident, Kedrick Crawford said he was pulled over in a parking lot off of Garth Road around midnight, looking for something in his car when the officers approached him.

At the time, the officers said Crawford resisted arrest and consequently threw him to the ground, used a Taser on him, hit him with closed and open hands, and put him in a chokehold.

Crawford was charged with assaulting a police officer. A spokesman for the department said one of the officers was scratched by Crawford's nails.

Crawford was not charged for the pills found in his car, as he said they were antibiotics for a spider bite that were in small bags so he could remember the dosage.

Prior to the incident, records from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement show both of the officers seen in body camera video underwent hundreds of hours of training. One went through racial profile training, while the other took cultural diversity training in December 2019.

The grand jury also indicted detention officer Shane Dunlap, a civilian public servant, for the same charge.

"Nobody is above the law, including those who have a duty to enforce the law," Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said about the officers' indictment.

The charges against the officers carry a penalty of five to 99 years or life in prison and a fine of no more than $10,000.
