Galveston County Sherriff’s Deputy Arrested for Family Violence

On Saturday night, August 19th at approximately 11:30pm, a 22-year-old female came to the Justice Center to report that she was assaulted by her boyfriend that morning at around 2:00am, who she identified as 32-year-old Fred Boas, a Galveston County Sherriff’s Deputy.

According to the victim, she and Boas were engaged in a verbal argument inside of Boas’ apartment in the 200 block of Market St. During this argument, the victim alleges that Boas pushed her, causing her to fall over the bed, sustaining several bruises. She also stated that Boas aggressively picked her up off of the floor by her wrist causing her pain. Investigators with Galveston Police Department’s Family Services Unit interviewed the victim and photographed several of her injuries that are consistent with her testimony. The victim also provided investigators with an audio recording from her cell phone of her and Boas directly after the assault took place. In the recording the male voice can be heard apologizing for assaulting her.

After consulting with the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office, an arrest warrant was requested for the offense of Assault Causing Bodily Injury – Family Violence, a Class A misdemeanor, with a bond set at $7,500.00. The warrant was subsequently served on Tuesday August 22nd, when Boas was arrested and remanded to the Galveston County Jail.
