Gibson County sheriff’s deputies arrested Angela Delaney, 58, on one count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. She was also given a ticket for driving while her license was suspended, deputies said.

A deputy was sent to investigate around 2:30 a.m. Sunday after Delaney showed up at the jail to bond out an unidentified inmate. Deputy Loren Barchett noticed that a 2005 Dodge Neon was illegally parked in front of the building, angled the wrong way. Authorities identified Delaney as the car’s driver and said she appeared to be impaired.

Barchett ran Delaney’s name through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles database, where he learned that the Princeton woman’s license was suspended for an infraction.

Deputies booked Delaney into jail. She was not able to bond out the inmate whom she went to fetch from Gibson County Jail.

Garza, 65, was arrested March 3 on child pornography charges, and faces additional charges after it was discovered that he allegedly molested an older sister in the family years ago.

The Star-Telegram reports that the boy, who was trying to fix the hard drive on his own computer, asked to borrow Garza's computer. While using it, he clicked on a folder and discovered the images of his sister. He returned the computer to Garza and told his mother about the images. She asked the boy to request to use the computer again so she could see the images for herself. The mother confronted Garza about the images and police were called to the scene.

Officer Domingo Martinez, who works for the Fort Worth Police Department’s Crimes Against Children Task Force, told the Star-Telegram that Garza admitted to the mother that he had a problem and said he would disappear if she didn't call police.

In interviews with authorities, the 10-year-old victim said Garza bought her items and gave her money, and told her not to tell her parents about the abuse. 

Garza remains behind bars while investigators work to determine if there are additional victims.

Pixie, a 7-pound Yorkshire Terrier mix, has been able to eat small amounts of food, Paws 2 Help founder Eve Van Engel said Monday.

“When they came in this morning, you’d think we’d won the lottery,” Van Engel said, describing the staff’s excitement over Pixie’s improvement. “(At first) she wouldn’t eat, couldn’t eat. Last night she ate some food. This morning she ate a whole jar of Gerber baby food.”

Dr. Lisa Matthews said necrotic tissue still has to be removed from around Pixie’s snout and the dog is receiving pain medication and antibiotics.

“But she’s already so much better than she was Saturday afternoon when she came in,” Matthews said. “I wasn’t real hopeful Saturday afternoon but I feel a lot better today after seeing her.”

Pixie had an elastic hair tie around her snout that cut a 3/4-inch-deep gash between her eyes and nose, Paws 2 Help founder Eve Van Engel said late Sunday.

The wound was so gangrenous that the little dog “smelled like horse manure” when she was dropped off, Van Engel said, and it’s unknown when the dog last ate.

Who bound the dog’s mouth shut is unclear.
