WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — An Electra man who got arrested for an alleged assault of a woman, got out of jail the next day, then the next day was arrested on violation of a protective order, then released the same day on that charge, has been arrested and released again.

Daniel Wyatt, at last check, was free on his latest bond of $20,000. This charge was filed Sunday, June 16, 2024, for another alleged assault on April 2, 2024.

According to the Wichita County jail log, Wyatt has been arrested and released on bonds 4 times since March 2024. His arrest list shows 23 total arrests since 2001 including at least one other assault and 5 charges of contempt of court.

Before his arrest on June 10 for assault of a woman with a beer bottle, Electra police said he told them the woman had suffered her head injury by falling off his truck, and she refused his efforts to get her to seek medical attention.

Officers said his story collapsed when they found green glass shards, blood, and a strong odor of alcohol on the ground at the scene. Glass shards were pulled from the woman’s head at the hospital, where she required 18 stitches.

When confronted with those facts, police said Wyatt admitted it looked bad for him.

After posting bond on that charge, an Electra police officer saw Wyatt back at a house on Franklin that the protective order covers and arrested him again.

Another assault arrest this year resulted when police went to Bryan Street on a report of a fight in the street and found a victim with a large bloody wound to the back believed caused by a set of keys on a cord or chain.
