Willie Jermaine Weekley is also facing a revocation of probation on previous felony convictions.

Weekley was indicted Jan. 28 by the Hunt County grand jury on a charge of violation of protective order twice or more within 12 months.

Weekley, 38, who also lists an address in Mesquite in court records, reportedly made threats of violence while hiding from police at the Clay Cooley Auto Dealership at 1540 E. Interstate 30 in Rockwall on Jan. 5.


Police allege that officers from Royse City and Rockwall County were at the dealership attempting to serve felony arrest warrants on Weekley. He had been wanted on two counts of family violence and violation of a protective order.

Police reports indicated that upon arrival at the dealership, Weekley observed the officers, and before he could be taken into custody he hid. While hiding, he telephoned a victim in the alleged family violence offenses and reportedly told her that he intended to kill the police officers if they attempted to take him into custody. He also threatened to kill her if he could get away.
 Officers on scene requested the assistance of the Rockwall Police Department SWAT team, which responded. A search of the property was concluded and at about 6 p.m. Weekley was found hiding in a vehicle at the car dealership. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Hunt County Detention Center and booked in on the felony warrants.


Regarding allegations that Weekley violated probations for previous convictions of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and possession of a controlled substance,

a hearing is scheduled April 25 in Hunt County’s 354th District Court.

Weekley being held this week in lieu of bonds totaling $250,000.
