Texoma Man Won't Go to Trial on Assault Charges

A Grand Jury in Wichita County has no billed a Texoma man on a single charge of assault causing bodily injury after police say he got into a fight inside a moving car.

Officials suspected 25-year-old Christopher Sims of assaulting a man giving him a ride to Wichita Falls on May 16th. Officials report the victim claims he was punched multiple times, causing him to wreck into a guardrail in I-44 in Burkburnett. Sims told officials the victim had fired a shot at him in the car during an altercation.

Officials say Sims has two previous convictions in Texoma.
