Mansfield junior Travis James Brown, 20, is free on a $20,000 bond after being charged with intoxicated assault and failing to render aid after a motor vehicle-pedestrian accident Saturday.

A Plato, Mo., freshman was hit by a black Ford F-250 while walking in the 2400 block of S. Second St. at 12:15 a.m. Saturday, said Waco Police spokesman Steve Anderson.

The vehicle was left at the area of the incident, Anderson said. The victim was transported to the hospital around 12:30 a.m. Anderson said there is no report indicating the extent of the victim’s injuries.

Brown was arrested at his residence within the hour on the two charges, which each warrant a $10,000 bond, according to the McLennan County sheriff’s records office. He was released later the same day.

Baylor Police Capt. Danny Knight said Baylor police officers did not witness an abnormal number of alcohol-related activities on campus, on Halloween night.

“There was a slight increase in call volume, but that was also due to it being homecoming night,” Knight said. “Activity on campus was normal for what we experience on a Friday night.”
