Sus­pect in ram­ming of Fox 4 of­fices is re­leased

The Dallas Morning News - - North Texas - Loyd Brumfield

The driver ac­cused of in­ten­tion­ally ram­ming his truck into the KDFW-TV (Chan­nel 4) news build­ing has been re­leased by the Dal­las County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment be­cause a for­mal case hasn’t been filed against him.

Michael Fry was ar­rested Sept. 5 af­ter his truck slammed into the Fox 4 of­fices just af­ter 6 a.m., but the sher­iff’s of­fice can’t de­tain him for­ever with­out a case, sher­iff’s spokesman Raul Reyna said.

“We can only hold so long if a case is not filed,” Reyna said, ac­cord­ing to WFAA-TV (Chan­nel 8).

Fry can be ar­rested again if po­lice pur­sue a case against him, Reyna said.

On the day of the crash, Fry scat­tered pa­pers ev­ery­where once he got out of his truck. The fliers in­cluded news cov­er­age of 2012 in­ci­dent when Fry was a pas­sen­ger in a pickup that rammed a Den­ton County deputy’s squad car af­ter the deputy stopped the truck near Krum.

An of­fi­cer shot and killed the driver, 21-year-old Roberto Her­nan­dez.

“They tried to kill me. And they missed. And hit him,” says a hand­writ­ten note scrib­bled in the mar­gins of the flier. “They used brain­wash­ing tac­tics.”
