Four Texans Allegedly Started A ‘Purge,’ Used Chair, 2-By-4 As Weapons

Four residents at a Texas center for disabled and medically fragile individuals were arrested for allegedly starting a “purge” that injured multiple employees Monday, according to a police report.

Daniel Bundy, 20, Alice Barron, 30, Jacob Woods, 19, and Dalton Routon, 20, allegedly injured several Lubbock State Supported Living Center employees after the residents weren’t allowed to go to the Panhandle South Plains Fair, KCBD 11 reported Tuesday.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. on Monday, a Texas Health and Human Services (THHS) spokesperson told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Two of the residents allegedly damaged vehicles in the parking lot, according to KCBD 11. All four allegedly broke furniture, destroyed windows and other property inside a building, and one pulled a fire alarm.

The residents allegedly used a 2-by-4, a metal piece from a window trim and a chair to attack employees that tried stopping them, KCBD 11 reported. (RELATED: Texas Board Of Education Set To Remove Hillary Clinton From Social Studies Books)

It was unclear how many people were injured.

The four residents were charged for aggravated assault, felony criminal mischief and organized crime, and Woods was charged with a false alarm or report, according to KCBD 11.

“We are conducting a full review of the incident and assessing next steps,” the spokesperson told TheDCNF.

The Purge is a horror series where crime is legal once per year for 12 hours each year, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Lubbock State is a state-supported living center for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are medically fragile, according to the THHS website. Lubbock is among 13 centers operated by THHS.

“State supported living centers provide 24-hour residential services, comprehensive behavioral treatment services and health care services, including physician services, nursing services and dental services,” the THHS website said. “Other services include skills training; occupational, physical and speech therapies; vocational programs; and services to maintain connections between residents and their families and natural support systems.”

Lubbock State was established in 1969 and was able to hold over 600 residents in 1979, according to the Texas State Historical Association.
