Isaiah Dominique Hearne is being held in lieu of a total of fifteen thousand dollars bond in the Hunt County jail on a charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.
Judge Richard A. Beacon scheduled another hearing for Tuesday morning in order to consider Hearne’s bond. A complaint filed by the Commerce Police Department indicates officers responded to a call of a shoplifter at Wal-Mart on the afternoon of December 14th. A store employee reported the suspect had made off with a thirty pack of beer and fled on foot. Hearne, who matched the description of the suspect, was detained by another officer a short time later and the beer was recovered. Hearne was booked into the city jail on a misdemeanor charge of theft.
Later in the evening, officers responded to Hearne’s cell after a fight had broken out. They allegedly found Hearne hitting a 43 year old man who was also occupying the cell repeatedly. Even after the victim had fallen to the floor of the cell and was motionless.
