Motel security officer assaulted, maintenance worker arrested

BELLMEAD, TX - A 37-year-old maintenance worker at a Bellmead motel has been arrested, charged with assaulting a security officer who worked at the same motel.

Nathan Wayne Taylor was arrested late Friday night at the Delta Inn in the 1300 block of Behrens Circle in Bellmead.

Police were called to the motel at 10:25 p.m. and met with the 28-year-old male victim who was working security at the motel.

He told officers he had gone to the office of the motel when a disturbance broke out between the maintenance worker and the desk clerk.

When the security officer tried to remove him from the office, Taylor is accused first of shoving him, then of escalating the situation, attempting to coax the officer into a fight.

He is then accused of pulling a knife and telling the officer to " do something."

At that point a citizen intervened and got Taylor to leave the office and go to another area of the motel. 

Officers were able to locate him shortly after they arrived and took him into custody.
