When they got there Kerens Police Chief Bryan Miers said they attempted contact with one of the involved parties, Coy Boles, 32. Boles fled on foot, and was pursued by three separate officers.

During the altercation with Coy Boles, his brother Larry D. Boles, also 32, decided to involve himself, Miers said. Larry Boles was arrested for Obstruction/ Retaliation and resisting arrest. The incident became more intense when Larry kicked out the window to a patrol car. Larry was then charged with criminal mischief. Larry did not desist and was ultimately charged with escape. However, both Boles brothers were eventually transported to Navarro County Justice Center and charged with a host of criminal offenses.
Coy Boles posted bond the following day with a total bond amount of $21,000. Larry Boles remains in custody with bonds totaling $50,000, and a no bond on a motion to revoke probation.
