COFFEE CITY, Texas (KLTV) - Police are asking for help finding a man wanted on four charges who was involved in a disturbance at a motel on Lake Palestine.

Authorities are searching for Andrew William Wilson, 31, who also goes by the false alias Christopher Wolfe.

On Mar. 15 around 11:30 a.m., police responded to the Lake Palestine Motor Inn for a disturbance, where Wilson had allegedly assaulted a woman and then fled prior to officers’ arrival. Police said a warrant was issued for assault causing bodily injury (family violence).

That same day at about 5 p.m., police responded to a vehicle in a ditch by Fat Dogs beverages on Live Oak Drive. The driver, Williams, gave a false name then ran behind Fat Dogs beverages into an unlocked home nearby, the post said.

The Smith County Sheriff’s Office, Chandler Police Department and Henderson County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist but were unable to locate Williams. Three additional warrants for evading arrest, failure to identify as a fugitive and criminal trespass were issued.

If you locate this person or have any information on where he may be, contact the Coffee City Police Department at (903) 876-4946 or Henderson County Sheriff’s Office at (903) 675-5128.
