Police Arrest Man For Morning Hit & Run on Paul Jones Avenue

Date: Wednesday, July 20, 2016, 6:10am
Location: Paul Jones Avenue at South Padre Island Drive
Offense: Accident Involving Injury or Death (Transportation Code Section 550.021) Felony
Case Number: 1607200031

Corpus Christi Police arrested 40-year-old Alexis Derise Jr. (8/10/1975) in relation to a hit and run crash on Paul Jones Avenue Wednesday morning in which a bicyclist was struck by a vehicle and the vehicle fled the scene.

Corpus Christi Police responded to a crash scene at Paul Jones Avenue and South Padre Island Drive at 6:10am after a RTA bus driver called police when they found a man with obvious injuries and a bicycle laid in the roadway by the curb. Officers learned that the bicyclist was a 61-year-old man and was immediately taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of serious injuries. Witnesses told Officers there was a truck that may have struck the man on the bicycle, but the operator of the truck did not stop to aid the 61-year-old man and left the area prior to law enforcement arrival.

Officers searched the area and at 8:20am, located a green and tan Ford F-250 on the 8300 block of Moffett Circle which they believed may have been involved in the crash. Officers located Derise in his nearby house on the 8300 block of Moffett Circle and brought Derise to Police Headquarters for an interview. Officers impounded the truck and then gathered enough evidence to conclude that they believe Derise operated the truck that struck the 61-year-old man, that Derise did not stop to render aid, and Derise did not make an attempt to summon emergency services as required by the Texas Transportation Code. Officers arrested Derise, took him to the hospital for a medical evaluation, and then delivered Derise to the city detention center with the accusation of Accident Involving Injury or Death. Investigators will gather more information about the condition of the 61-year-old man.

#5 West Nile Mosquito Detected 400 Bartlett

The Corpus Christi Animal Control and Vector Services received a confirmation of West Nile virus in a mosquito in the 400 Block Bartlett from a test that was submitted July 12, 2016.

Vector Services has implemented the Mosquito Management Response Plan to this detection. The response entails the following:

  1.  The spraying of a 1/2 mile radius around the area of the detection for three consecutive nights beginning tonight.
  2. Police Directed Patrol Officers and Neighborhood Services personnel will be attempting to locate any standing water in the affected neighborhood including examining abandoned properties.
  3. Vector Services will conduct continuing surveillance of mosquito traps in the immediate area for signs of the Culex species of mosquito responsible for West Nile virus.

The need to spray a larger area is not necessary based on the entomology of the Culex species mosquito and the normal travel distance of this mosquito. Vector Control will be conducting the aerial spray in the evening, and at dusk, since that is the time the Culex is most active. Residents are reminded to check their property for standing water and to avoid, if possible, outdoor activities at dusk and dawn, wear long sleeve shirts and long pants. Use appropriate mosquito repellent with DEET for themselves and their children. Please call 361-826-2489 if you wish to report abandoned property or high grass or standing water.
