HOWELL COUNTY -- A Koshkonong man, David Allen Teague, was transported to the Missouri Department of Corrections last week after violating terms of his parole.
On Aug. 28 officers with the Howell County Sheriff's Department responded to a call from Teri Teague at her home on Private Road 13688, Koshkonong. When the officers arrived they were met by Teri Teague and her parents, Robert and Barbara Cox of Thayer.
Teri Teague told lawmen she had called her parents to come to her home because David Teague, 22, her husband, had a gun and would not allow her to take her child from the home.
According to the sheriff's office, her parents told the officers when they arrived at the Teague home they had heard two gunshots. They said they did not know where they had been fired from, but then they saw their daughter walking from the mobile home carrying the child wrapped in a blanket and she handed the child to her mother.
After handing the baby to her mother, Teri then got into the passenger side of the Cox vehicle and placed the child on her lap.
The couple said David Teague then walked to the vehicle and pointed a rifle at Robert Cox and threatened to kill him.
Cox said Teague was three feet away from him when this occurred. Cox said he opened the vehicle door and heard a shot; he said he thought the bullet passed near him. Cox said David Teague pointed the gun at his wife and the child she was holding, threatening to kill them.
David Teague then ran into the woods and lawmen spent the next three days looking for him.
He was located and taken into custody Aug. 31 on Private Road 13666 near Koshkonong and charged with unlawful use of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.
He was scheduled to appear in Howell County Associate Circuit Court Sept. 6 for arraignment but due to the charges was automatically transported to the Missouri Department of Corrections for violating his parole on a previous conviction of felony stealing.
According to the Oregon County Circuit Clerk and Recorders Office, Teague was convicted in April 2004 of felony stealing of a motor vehicle in Oregon County.
