You know those really obvious things that you shouldn't do in life? Yeah, well this guy tried one of them.

According to a report from the Killeen Daily Herald, Joseph Wayne Fegurgur, 36, was sentenced on Monday to 60 years in prison for assaulting a public servant.

The crime is a third degree felony, but was enhanced to a first-degree felony because of Fegurgur's long criminal history. Some folks really never learn.

The incident occurred back in 2017 after a housekeeper discovered "several ‘lines of a white substance along with a glass pipe,” in a room she was cleaning. The housekeeper informed her manager of the paraphernalia, who in turn reached out to local authorities.

When police arrived they spoke with the manager and reviewed photos of the scene that had been taken by the housekeeper. Police believed the room's occupants possessed illegal drugs, and went with the hotel manager to speak with them. When the hotel manager ordered the occupants to leave the hotel, authorities realized that Fegurgur had a warrant out for his arrest, and decided to attempt to take him into custody.

It was then that, "(The officer) struggled with the suspect, with the suspect striking (the officer) several times about the face and body,” according to the affidavit. The officer was injured in his back and shoulders and also was cut above his eyebrow.

So not only did Fergurgur avoid arrest, but he assaulted an officer in the process. Really not the smartest thing to do.
