Prisoner injured after courthouse incident

Hunt County – A Hunt County prisoner is injured after an incident Monday at the Hunt County Courthouse. Terrence Anthony Roundtree of Commerce was transported to the emergency room at Presbyterian Hospital of Greenville, after witnesses said he rammed his head through the glass portion of a courtroom door. He was facing the revocation of his probations he had received last year for assaulting two Commerce Police Department officers. Roundtree was apparently angered by a judge's decision to postpone his hearing which led to the incident. Roundtree was reported to have suffered lacerations to his head and face.
