Man Dies in Custody, Investigation Ongoing

ANAHUAC, September 29, 2014 - Sheriff Brian C. Hawthorne reports that on September 28, 2014 Chambers County 911 received a call of a black male on FM 3180 trying to stop vehicles. The caller stated the male was very excited, trying to open the driver’s door of the vehicle and was trying to get into the vehicle.

A second call came into 911 of a home invasion from a woman stating that a male had kicked in the back door of her residence and attacked her with a pole he found inside the house. The suspect left the residence, and then returned to the residence tearing the inside of the residence up.

Deputy Hasley with the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the victim’s residence in the 4400 block of Wood Duck and confronted the suspect who was leaving the victim’s residence. The suspect, who was later identified as Oliver Jarrod Gregoire 26 years old, charged the deputy who deployed his Taser hitting the suspect who went to the ground. The suspect was able to get the leads off and charged the deputy a second time. The deputy deployed his Taser a second time and the suspect again went to the ground. A neighbor who witnessed the incident came to the aid of the deputy and helped handcuff the suspect who was still fighting the deputy. By then EMS arrived and they were treating the female victim inside her house.

The deputy noticed the suspect had become unresponsive and got EMS from inside the house. The deputy started CPR on the suspect and EMS continued CPR and transported the suspect to San Jacinto Methodist Hospital on Garth road where he was pronounced dead. The Texas Rangers are assisting the Sheriff’s Office with the ongoing investigation of this incident.
